Mass - 9:00am Live from St. Joseph’s
“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.”

Guardian Angel Prayer
Dear Guardian Angel
Go for me to the Church, and there kneel down at Mass for me. At the Offertory take me to God and offer Him my service: What I am, what I have, offer as my gift. At the Consecration, with your seraphic strength, adore my Saviour truly present, praying for those who have loved me, for those who have offended me, and for those now deceased, that the blood of Jesus may purify them all. During Holy Communion bring me the Body and Blood of Jesus, uniting Him with me in spirit, so that my heart may become His dwelling place. Plead with Him that through His sacrifice all people throughout the world may be saved. When the Mass ends bring home to me and to every home, the Lord’s Blessing. Amen
A prayer recommended by Cardinal Nichols

Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary - Sunday 29th March 2020
The first dedication of England was made by King Richard II in 1381, as England faced the turmoil of the Peasants’ Revolt, an uprising that took place in response to high taxes. The Rededication which takes place this Sunday March 29, 2020, is a personal dedication of the people of England following in the footsteps of the king. In thanksgiving for the end of the Revolt Richard returned and gave the country as a gift - a dowry - to Our Lady for her continued protection and guidance. Until the Reformation, Kings of England went on Pilgrimage to Walsingham to renew this dedication but the commitment was abandoned by Henry VIII.
Today, we, the Catholics of England follow in that tradition. As we face personal, national, and worldwide challenges today, we turn to Mary once again and offer our faith as she leads us to her Son. It is noteworthy that at this time of world crisis caused by the Coronavirus several countries including France and Spain, have rededicated their countries to Mary on the Feast of the Annunciation, seeking her intercession for the world at this critical moment, recognising that her mission in the Church since the first Pentecost is to lead us to Christ. Mary, Mother of the Church. Pray for us.

We have now been told that our churches are not to be opened even for private prayer, as it is not one of the reasons allowed by the Government for going out. We trust in God that He will be with us all at this difficult time.
Bishop Mark is arranging to be available online from the Cathedral every morning at 11am and this will be through the Diocesan and Cathedral websites. We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. Please continue to care for each other especially those who are vulnerable and/or elderly.
Please see the ’Mass Times’ section for details regarding the opening of each church for private prayer.

… go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations. Baptise them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you. And know that I am with you always, until the end of time’. (Mt. 28:18-20)
As Christians, as the Church, we are called to know Jesus Christ present with us, and to proclaim and share the faith we have received. Bishop Mark has offered us an opportunity to take part in this Great Commission through The Catechetical Institute at Franciscan University.
