SS Peter & Paul and the Feast of the Precious Blood

The post-Easter season concludes with two wonderful feasts, the latter of which is not celebrated in the revised calendar. I am please to say Fr Paul returned to duties today at Wednesbury after not being able to celebrate Mass on Sunday and for the Sacred Heart, so there will be Masses at Wednesbury both on Wednesday and Friday. The Birmingham Oratory will as usual replace the usual daily 5.45pm low Mass with a High Mass at 7.30pm for SS Peter and Paul. As the Precious Blood falls on a first Friday, there will be a Mass at Acocks Green which has not occurred for a couple of months due to the priest not being available and the Jubilee Bank Holiday. Finally the Friday Mass returns at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton after taking a break for the annual novena leading up to the patronal parish feast.

Wednesday 29th June (SS Peter & Paul - Holy Day of Obligation)

6.30pm St Mary-on-the-Hill, Wednesbury - Low Mass

7.30pm Birmingham Oratory - High Mass (n.b. no 5.45pm Mass)

Friday 1st July (Feast of the Precious Blood) - all Low Masses

5.45pm Birmingham Oratory

6.30pm Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Wolverhampton

Sacred Heart Masses

There will be a Sung Mass at the usual time (5.45pm) at the Birmingham Oratory for the Feast of the Sacred Heart. The usual Friday Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour has been cancelled due to the annual Novena taking place this week, but there is an additional Mass at St Mary-on-the-Hill in Wednesbury at 6.30pm. Directions to these Masses are available in the sidebar.

Corpus Christi and Friday Mass Cancellation

High Mass will be celebrated at the Oratory at 7.30pm for the traditional date of Corpus Christi, which has been moved to Sunday by the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales. This replaces the usual 5.45pm Mass. There will also be a Low Mass celebrated at St Mary-on-the-Hill in Wednesbury at 6.30pm.

Finally, please note that due to First Holy Communions taking place, there will be no third Friday Mass at St Dunstan's this week.
