Feast of the Assumption – Mass Bookings now open!

By kind permission of Fr Patrick Hutton, there will be two Masses celebrated by the FSSP on Saturday 15th August, the Feast of the Assumption. These will take place at 6 pm and 7.30 pm. Bookings are now open and need to be made in the usual way via bedfordlatinmass@gmail.com.

Hope to see you to celebrate this Holyday of Obligation in honour of Our Lady!

Eucharistic Adoration and Confession 1st August


After our very well attended afternoon of Adoration and Confession on 27th  June, we are pleased to announce that a further similar afternoon will take place at Christ the King, Bedford, on Saturday 1st August from 3 pm – 6 pm.   We very much appreciate the attendance of our FSSP priests from Reading to enable this to happen.  In addition, many people are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that all the necessary conditions are met to ensure the church is safe to enter, and we are most grateful to them.


It is hoped that while Confessions cannot be heard after Sunday Mass, these afternoons will take place monthly, possibly on the 1st Saturday of the month, but please watch this space for future dates.

TWO Masses on Sunday!

We are pleased to announce that the FSSP will be saying two Sunday Masses at Christ the King from Sunday 5 July at 8.30 am and 1 pm.
Due to the need for social distancing, the seating capacity will be much lower than usual. You will need to book for these Masses by e-mailing bedfordlatinmass@gmail.com, stating which Mass you would prefer to attend, and will need to give your contact details for Test and Trace in line with Government guidelines.

Fr Patrick Hutton says in this week’s newsletter: Without booking, if there are no seats left free on the day, sadly you would have to be turned away.

Act promptly and spread the word to ensure that you can be present at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the first time since 15 March!
