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.

Happy Feast of St. Mary Magdalen

Feast of St. Mary Magdalen

St Mary Magdalen Day this year will be celebrated next Sunday, 24th July. The main Mass will have special music, and afterwards there will be something to eat. I have been asked to ask you to bring food for a buffet. If someone is able to arrange flowers, it would be good to bring flowers for our Holy Patron by Friday.

Pilgrimage to West Grinstead with Bishop Richard

I have five invitations from the Bishop to a pilgrimage to The Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation, at West Grinstead on Sunday 17th July.

There will be a coach leaving from Hove – let me know if you would like one.
