Resources for prayer and attending Mass at home

With the current COVID-19 outbreak, and in light of the announcement from the Bishops of England and Wales that public Mass has been suspended until further notice, we will not be meeting at Our Lady & St Michael’s for our monthly meetings.

However, we can still pray for vocations at home and I am currently looking into using Skype so that we can gather virtually via the internet and still pray for vocations together. There will be more details about our potential Skype meeting to come, so please keep our usual meeting time slot booked for Serra in your diaries!

In the meantime, some useful resources for praying at home:

Local Churches

Our Lady & St. Michael’s – Garston
Mass is being broadcast live on Sundays at 11.15am on Our Lady & St Michael’s Facebook page.
St. Helen’s – North Watford

St Helen’s will broadcast Mass at 9am on Sundays – hopefully on their Youtube channel going forward, though the 4th Sunday of Lent was on their Facebook page.

2020 Serra International Convention – New Orleans

Our Convention of 2020 will take place in New Orleans, June 25th -27th. Planning is well underway by the New Orleans Serrans in a city famous for its jazz festivals, noted French Quarter and Bourbon Street. You can sit in Jackson Square in the shadow of the 18th century St Louis Cathedral where artists paint portraits or simply absorb the serenity of this Majestic Cathedral. Again a programme of renowned speakers promises another great convention.

More details will follow as the programme develops.
