Sunday 29th November 2020 (Advent Sunday)

I will start this post by wishing everyone a Happy New Year! Advent Sunday is the start of the Church’s year; for those of us using Common Worship, we move into Year B today.

And we also have some good news. This will be our last Sunday worshiping from home. Places of Worship are able to open again next week; there will be the usual 12:15 PM Mass at St. Edmund’s next Wednesday (2nd December 2020), and Mass at 11 AM next Sunday (6th December 2020). Dudley will be placed in Tier 3 once the lock-down has ended, this is the most up-to-date information I have as to how attendance at church should be conducted:

The Following on-line services are available today:

0900 – Live Mass

1100: Benefice Zoom Service (Holy Communion)

Starting today, the Bishop of Ebbsfleet will be submitting weekly reflections to run alongside our weekly sermons at church. You can either watch this week’s talk here:

I shall leave you with Bishop Jonathan’s prayer for us:

May Christ the Morning Star, who when the night of this world is past gives to His saints the promise of the light of life, and opens to them everlasting day, bless, guide you and keep you safe.
