This page will show a livestream of our parish masses. It will only be live for the Mass itself. The image will change so that you'll see the church. You'll need to press the play button that appears when you hover your mouse over the picture. Please get in contact if you have any problems! If you want the words of Mass, so as to follow along, you can get them here. If you have problems with buffering in following the Mass or getting it display full screen, you might find it easier to watch it directly on Vimeo. This will also enable you to watch it later should you wish to.
Masses will be at midday everyday.
Prayer of Spiritual Communion
I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things
and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come spiritually into my soul
so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.
based on a prayer of St Alphonsus Liguori
Join us for tea and coffee after Mass! Every day, 10 minutes after our midday live-streamed Mass finishes, we're inviting you to join us here: This should give you a bit of time to make your thanksgiving and put the kettle on before coming online for a virtual chat!
We wanted to give people the opportunity to continue giving to the parish, despite not having a physical collection basket. If you'd like to make a donation, you can do so using the button below. If you have a PayPal account you can use this and if not just choose the donate by card option. You can also Gift Aid your donation. All donations will go into the St Francis Parish account and shared between our two parishes. Very many thanks for your kindness and generosity.
