The summer months are full of saint’s days, including the universal feast of St Dominic, although in our parish we mark his feast day with special solemnity on 24 May. This August we have three special Masses scheduled in the Rosary Shrine, to which all are very welcome:
Thursday 8 August: the feast of our holy father, St Dominic. In addition to Masses at 7:30pm and 6pm, there will be a Mass at 11:30am celebrated with the Missionaries of Charity.
Saturday 10 August: the feast of St Lawrence, deacon and martyr. There will be a ‘Missa Cantata’ (Sung Mass) in the Dominican rite at 4pm, at the Altar of Our Lady of the Rosary, followed by the praying of the Rosary.
Thursday 22 August: the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (or Queenship of Mary). There will be a ‘Missa Cantata’ (Sung Mass) in the Dominican rite, at 7:30pm, at the High Altar, followed by a Eucharistic Rosary Procession. The ‘Schola Sainte-Cecile’ from Paris will be singing this Mass. More details here.
