Coronavirus – Live Streaming Mass and Services

Preparing to Participate in a Live Stream Mass at Home

Bishop Richard writes “With the number of people within the family of our Diocese compelled to self-isolate many will value the possibility of watching live streamed Masses online. A number of parishes in our Diocese are live streaming Mass and other services online, allowing our many congregations to continue participating in the spiritual life of the Church during this time.”

The Abbey is streaming full video only for the daily Monastic Mass and Solemn Vespers (on Sundays + Solemnities), while continuing audio only for the other monastic prayer times. Details are available here.

Video live streaming of the Parish Sunday Vigil Mass celebrated each Saturday at 5.00pm can be viewed here.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
