Sunday Bulletin 19 July 2021

So many graces! Thank you to all those who helped make this possible: His Grace who came from Liverpool again this year; Fr Whisenant for the very hard work put in preparing the many candidates; Fr Verrier who drove back a long […]

Bedford Mass Times 19th July 2020

NB: While the booking system is the preferred option, it is not an absolute requirement to book seats in order to come to Mass. However, those who do not book stand the very real risk of disappointment if the church building has reached its capacity, especially as priority should be given to those who have booked.

X-Ray of the Priest

in a Field Hospital Newly released book by Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP https://aroucapress.com/x-ray-of-the-priest Since no priest wishes to be mediocre, why do many think priestly holiness too ambitious a goal? This book identifies sinful hindrances and spiritual resources for a fruitful and rewarding priestly life in the twenty-first century. These reflections are drawn from the author’s traditional priestly formation and from his twenty years of experience as retreat master for clergy and laity, and as vocations promoter. Praise for […]

Update on Mass Bookings

It was wonderful to see so many of our parishioners last Sunday in Reading, Chesham Bois and Bedford and we are pleased that the new, hopefully temporary, arrangements for our Masses all went smoothly. Our sincere thanks to those who are involved in our booking procedures and stewarding. Our arrangements are liable to be tweaked, due to a steady stream of updated guidelines from both civil and ecclesiastical authorities and in order to enable things to work more efficiently. The first tweak we are making regards our booking system for Sunday Masses.

St Mary’s is larger than most churches in the Archdiocese and our usual EF congregation should fit in our two Sunday Masses while observing the […]
