Sermon by Fr Martin Graham.
This week there is no sermon because I want to speak to you about an experiment, a trial that we will be starting in Lent.For the past while the priests who offer the Traditional Mass have been talking about regularising the Mass and so there are going to be some changes coming but I stress this is a trial to see how it goes.
At the moment Mass is offered on two Sundays of the month and then also on a Tuesday evening, here and at St Therese on the Somerton Road.From the First Sunday in Lent, the 5th March, there will a weekly Sunday Mass in the Extraordinary Form at 4pm and all the Masses will take place in St Therese.… Read More

‘‘Today we celebrate the Irish members of the Church in Glory with whom we, members of the Church Militant, enjoy the most intimate communion in Christ. Just days ago, we remembered, in a solemn way, all the saints of the universal Church and our brothers and sisters in Purgatory, the Church Suffering, who are undergoing the purification which anticipates their entrance into Heaven. When Christ, Risen from the Dead and Seated at the Right Hand of God the Father, returns in glory to consummate His redemptive work, the just, both those of the Church Suffering and those of the Church Militant, will all enter into the glory of the saints in Heaven.… Read More
A Holy Mass was offered for the Requiem of the Holy Souls. The catafalque was used at the Mass. A catafalque is a representation of a coffin covered by the black pall and surrounded by six unbleached candles; it is a symbolic representation of the deceased. When it is present, the priest sings the absolution for the deceased as if the body was present.
