We Welcome Children At Sunday morning Masses at St Benedict’s and St Oswald’s, after the formal greeting, our children are invited to leave for their own special Liturgy of the Word. The Bible readings for the day are shared with them in a way appropriate to their age. They have activities related to the Gospel. At the offertory they are welcomed back to rejoin their parents and the congregation for the rest of the Mass. If you would like to know more about our Children’s Liturgy Team click here.

- Weekday Masses
Now that the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter has arrived at St Mary’s, I am able to provide a new schedule of Masses for weekdays at St Benedict’s and St Oswald’s. Having spoken to those who attend weekday Mass, the new schedule is as follows:
Tuesday 9.30 am Mass at St Oswald’s
12.15 pm Mass at St Benedict’s (especially for St Mary’s Parishioners)
Wednesday 9.30 am Mass at St Benedict’s
Thursday 9.30 am Mass at St Oswald’s
Friday 9.30 am Mass at St Benedict’s
Saturday 10.30 am Devotional Liturgy at St Oswald’s
Three things to note about the new schedule:
Instead of Eucharistic Services, I invite parishioners to join me for daily Mass at either St Benedict’s or St Oswald’s.
On Saturday mornings, I will invite the Deacons to lead a non-Eucharistic liturgy on a rota basis at St Oswald’s.
The extra lunchtime Mass on Tuesday’s, to which everyone is welcome, is to support parishioners of St Mary’s who don’t wish to attend mass in the Extraordinary Form. Fr Dave.
