Re: Bidding Prayers and You

There are two different traditions of intercessions. The one traditionally used at Mass is the one where it becomes truly a prayer of the faithful, through the announcement of generic intentions of prayer which all than have an opportunity in silence to make their own in their individual circumstanc...

Re: Rome issues Triduum instructions

Bless and distribute palms later on in the year? It is indeed an option given by the official advice of the Congregation for Divine Worship, but I see no sense in it. Palms are a liturgical 'prop' for a procession that occurs only on Palm Sunday with a particular ritual significance on that day. No...

Re: Origins of the Preface

Good evening brethren and sistren, I wonder can anyone throw a little light on the origin and history of The Preface to the Eucharistic Prayer? To my shame I so often take the Preface for granted, often listening out for crucial cue-words such as "May our voices be one with them . . . " Thanks, Gwy...

Re: Rome issues Triduum instructions

It is a shame that the period from the 4th Sunday of Lent through to Pentecost and all the liturgies that come with it couldn't be moved to later in the year, in place of the Sundays of Ordinary Time. You can't pretend that you are somewhere different in the calendar. It's the same case as if you w...

Now that places of worship are to be closed for at least three weeks, there will be no music, alas, unless clergy wish to do unaccompanied singing... :(

Re: New Bishop of Northampton

Watched the whole thing live. The camera operator hadn't a clue.... and the sound quality was very variable. The feed froze at one point, but I managed to unfreeze it. But it was really nice to see David Oakley, a lovely man, being ordained as Northampton's chief shepherd. Following on from +Peter D...

Re: COVID-19 emergency measures and free Onelicense

Forgot to add that if you already have a OneLicense or Calamus licence, there is a free add-on available for those who want to stream or podcast liturgies that those not attending could watch at home (e.g. via the parish website).

Re: COVID-19 emergency measures and free Onelicense

If you need a temporary free licence, contact OneLicense by emailing info@onelicense.net Tell them you are in a UK parish that currently has no licence (even if you have a CCLI one) and they will help you.

COVID-19 emergency measures and free Onelicense

A number of dioceses and parishes have already discouraged or banned the use of hymnbooks, and it seems only a matter of time before the Bishops' Conference issues a blanket ban. Typically, the recommendation would be to use service sheets and destroy them immediately after use. The problem arises w...

Re: SSG Spring Gathering Winchester 14th March 2020

I'm not able to do this one, so I'm looking at Buckley and Burham on Sea. There are two Catholic churches in Burham on Sea: English Martyrs and St Andrew - which is it please? St Andrew is not a Catholic church (C of E). I assume it's Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Burnham-on-Sea: https://www....

Park and Ride looks possible at £3.00 for the day. Does anyone know how feasible this is?
Park and Ride is on the edge of the city. You'd need to allow time for the bus to negotiate its way to the centre through the Saturday shopping traffic.

Re: SSG Spring Gathering Winchester 14th March 2020

There's a 9:00am Mass at St Peter's so parking may be difficult. There are public car parks at hand, but once you go over 4 hours in the city centre car parks the charge jumps from £5.60 to £15.00...... St Peter's is a few minutes' walk from Winchester railway station.
