Following Fr Ray Blake’s stay in hospital and a period of rest and recuperation.
All St Mary Magdalen Masses on Sundays remain as they normally are. Sunday Masses are 10.30am (Sung) and 5pm (Low Mass). The Traditional Latin Mass, or Mass in the Extraordinary Form (Low Mass) also currently remains at its usual time of 6.30pm. This may change in future but currently continues as it has. Please note, as yet no Sunday Masses have been cancelled.
However, for the time being weekday daily Masses and the Friday 7pm Mass in the Extraordinary Form has been cancelled until further notice.
Fr Ray and the parish are very grateful to those priests who have assisted with celebrating Mass during Fr Ray’s illness and period of recuperation, including Fr Bruno Witchalls, Fr Johnathan Martin and Mgr Michael Jackson and Fr Ray extends his thanks and gratitude to those who have sent him well-wishes and who continue to offer prayers for his health.
Please keep Fr Ray and our parish in your prayers.
There will be no weekday Masses this week at St Mary Magdalen’s.
The First Mass in the church will be a Sung Mass at 10.30am this Sunday 20th November for the Feast of Christ the King celebrated by Mgr Michael Jackson.
The 5pm Low Mass on Sunday is also confirmed.
The 6.30pm Traditional Latin Mass on Sunday will be confirmed later this week.
There is no change to the 12.30pm Polish Mass on Sunday.
I would like to start something in the Parish for men, malady I am not entirely sure what it should be but men in Brighton so often live isolated lives and work crazy hours. Often they live lives that are highly stressed, in Brighton they are likely to suffer from stress and addictions and become the victims of homelessness and suicide.
In our parish we have lots very impressive men, remedy often they have had profound life experiences, that have given them deep wisdom and experience. The Church, families, the world, needs strong men, the Gospels are almost a manual for manliness, for being truly human, for brotherly love because Jesus Christ the God-man is our model in the service of God and the world.
If you think this is an idea which has possibilities, join me this Wednesday evening, after Benediction to put some flesh on my ideas and to share your own.
Why not come to Exposition and Benediction 6.30 –7.30pm, the meeting will end by 8.30pm.
