NEWCOMER OR VISITOR?
A very warm welcome to Christ the King. There are Confessions before and after Mass, we usually say a Rosary after Mass and refreshments are available in the church hall; please introduce yourself to the priest or one of the congregation. Our Masses are said by priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter; copies of their magazine, Dowry, are available at the back of church.

ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE MASS
Please note that in this form of the Mass, the Church asks us to receive Holy Communion on the tongue and – if physically able – kneeling.

STANDING ORDERS
All but £50 of our Latin Mass collection money goes to support Christ the King Parish. If you would like to help to ensure the continuing presence of the FSSP at Bedford, please consider setting up a standing order to them. These need to be set up by you through your bank: account name: FSSP England (Reading); sort code 30-93-04; account number 02027330. Gift Aid forms are also available by request. Thank you.
