It’s a great night for a Barn Dance!

If you haven’t bought your ticket, no worries, you can get one on the door!  It’a a lovely sunny evening, the dancing will be great fun and there is a prize for the best outfit, a bar and a raffle with fantastic prizes!  It’s at Christ the King Church Hall tonight (Friday 6 July) at 7.30 pm. And a bonus – half the proceeds will go to support the FSSP! See you there!

Sung Mass for the Nativity of St John the Baptist

Matthew Schellhorn is with us for the second Sunday running, this time to sing the Mass for the Nativity of St John the Baptist. We had a large congregation last Sunday and hope for even more people on the 24th.

Matthew encourages us to sing the congregational parts of the Mass and you can obtain copies of the music from the table at the back of church. Also there you will find a sheet giving the congregation’s postures for Sung Mass, which are slightly different from a Low Mass.

At a Sung Mass, time does not allow for the translation of the readings; here is a link where they can be found, along with much other useful information, kindly given to us by one of our congregation:  http://www.divinumofficium.com/cgi-bin/missa/missa.pl
