Sunday

Sunday Parish Mass

Every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. for 1hr

Virginia Road
Gillingham

Our main act of worship each week, when we gather to hear God's Word proclaimed, and to receive Holy Communion. We use the modern-language form of service, with a modicum of traditional Catholic ceremonial to foster a sense of the mystery of the Mass. We usually sing a mixture of traditional and more modern hymns, together with a simple congregational Mass setting, led by our cantor(s) and volunteer organist/pianist, although for the time being (owing to the Covid-19 crisis) singing will not be allowed.

Children and young people are encouraged to stay for the whole service, as it is not possible to have a separate Sunday School at present. For young families, there is a 'safe space' especially for them, with room to move around, but at the moment we cannot provide soft toys/colouring materials.

The Ministry of Christian Healing is available by arrangement with Father Garry, as is the Sacrament of Reconciliation (aka Confession).
