Watch the 12.10pm Mass on Thursday 3rd June here.

This evening there will be a Sung Mass of Corpus Christi (Latin EF), followed by a Eucharistic Procession and Benediction.

"To myself, with many others, it is the Presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament which is the relief and consolation for all the troubles of ecclesiastical affairs. I wish you could make that your own consolation. What can I do better than call on you to go to Him who is your Life and your Strength? - who can do everything for you - who loves you and desires your love. What can harm you, if you place your hopes, wishes, doubts, difficulties into His hands; if you put your thoughts into His keeping, and beg Him to conform your heart to His heart, and your will to His will. He will make allowances for you, which no man can make - and can give you strength, illumination and peace which the world cannot give."

from a letter by St John Henry Newman, Cong. Orat., 3rd July 1870
