Feast of Corpus Christi

Here is the Mass for the Feast of Corpus Christi from Sacred Heart Church, Bilton. Greetings from Father Gerry and Father Graham.

We have now managed successfully to launch a streamed Mass instead of recorded Mass from Sacred Heart.  So instead of recorded, we will now be switching to live streaming. You may have to allow a few minutes at the advertised starting time and wait until it goes live. 

Sunday Mass will be live at 9.30am. You are invited to join us. You can also watch it later as a recording. 

Weekday Mass will be live at 10am. This Mass is available later as a recording.

Here are the latest videos from Sacred Heart Church, showing the celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper.

Fr Graham and Fr Gerry have been trying to provide online live streaming of the Masses from Sacred Heart Church, Bilton, Rugby. Technical difficulties have prevented us from doing this.

However we are now going to record certain Masses and put them immediately on YouTube so you can access them shortly after they have been celebrated. Some of this week’s Masses are there already.

Follow this link to Youtube. If you subscribe then you can find the link more easily another time. The key search words are Sacred Heart, Bilton.

Here are some of the Masses from earlier in Holy Week.

Mass for Wednesday of Holy Week

 EASTER SUNDAY.  Morning Mass will be on YouTube by 11am or shortly after. 

You can find the other streamed live Triduum Services, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil celebrated by Archbishop Bernard at St Chad’s Cathedral on birminghamdiocese.org.uk where other options are available. 

Please share this information with others who may be interested. I hope you may find this helpful. We now have a parish What’s App Group for spiritual support and information. Please contact us for details.

Be assured of our closeness to you in our Masses and prayers offered each day.  Please pray for us. Pray for all who have died, who are suffering and affected in different ways by the present crisis. Pray for all health workers and care workers. May we support and help one another in any way we can. 

May the peace and joy of the Risen Lord be with you as we celebrate this Easter.

Act of Spiritual Communion – Prayer of St Alphonsus

My Jesus,
I believe you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
Come spiritually into my soul
So that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.
Amen.
