Solemn Masses at Blackfen

There will also be a Solemn Mass in the Classical Roman Rite on Saturday 2 February at 10.30am at Our Lady of the Rosary, Blackfen, with blessing of candles and procession. We also hope to have High Mass but it will be Missa Cantata if not.

The following Saturday, 9th February, we have our Day with Mary in the parish. This year, the Mass will be a Solemn Mass (Missa Cantata) in the Classical Roman Rite (starting circa 11am). The Day with Mary begins at 10am, finishes about 5.30pm and includes consecration of the parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, outdoor procession of Our Lady, outdoor procession of the Blessed Sacrament in the afternoon, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, confessions, and enrolment in the brown scapular and the miraculous medal. Bring something to eat: tea and coffee are provided. There is a bookstall available at lunchtime with a selection of good Catholic books, especially those published by TAN.

(For those unfamiliar with the terminology, "High Mass" is solemn sung Mass with celebrant, deacon and subdeacon. Missa Cantata is solemn sung Mass but with celebrant only.)
