The Year of Mercy at the Birmingham Oratory

You may be aware that Pope Francis' Year of Mercy starts on the 8th December, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Well there is some important news with regards to this at the Birmingham Oratory.

Firstly, preceding the Feast day itself, which of course is the patronal feast of both the Oratory and the Birmingham Archdiocese, there will be a novena composed of a daily EF Mass, at 5.45pm on weekdays. On the vigil of the feast, the EF Mass will be followed by Vespers at 6.30pm. Then, on the feast day itself, there will be a Pontifical High Mass presided by oratorian Bishop Robert Byrne at 7pm. For the Year of Mercy itself, starting during the rest of Advent, there will be a daily EF Mass at 5.45pm with confessions available.

In other news, the 9.30am Mass on Saturday will move to 7.30am during Advent and celebrated as a candlelight Rorate Mass. Similarly, the Friday 5.45pm Masses will be Rorate Masses.
