We are pleased to inform you that from Saturday 10th April (Easter Saturday) Father Rupert Allen will be celebrating a weekly Low Mass at St. John’s, Bath (Saint John the Evangelist, S Parade, Bath BA2 4AF) every Saturday at 12:30pm, with confessions from 12noon. Canon Christopher Whitehead has invited Fr Allen to say this Mass each week, after the success of the monthly Masses which sadly were unable to take place during the lockdown.
Please do attend/promote this Mass, especially in Easter week – Saint John’s is a very fine church, just near the station, and is associated with St. John Henry Newman (the lady altar where Fr Allen will say the Mass was also used by him).

This Benedictine Feast will be sung in the Shrine of Our Lady of Glastonbury by the Community of Our Lady of Glastonbury as a votive Mass on December 7th, at 11am.
Please come along and bring a packed lunch if you wish.
As well as a few parking spaces next to the Monastery at St Peter's Grange, there is a large public car park near the entrance to the estate. The Monastery cafe/shop, on the way up the hill to the Monastery, has a very good reputation for its coffee and extensive range of food.

The Rupert Bevan Singers provided the music, which included Byrd's Mass for Five Voices.
The Mass was a votive Mass for Our Lady's birthday, this being the Saturday nearest to the Feast on the 8th September. In his sermon, Dom Bede pointed out that Our Lady had been venerated in Glastonbury since the earliest days of Christianity, and is still honoured around the world, despite all the opposition and persecution that the faithful have suffered.
Mass was followed by lunch in the parish hall, after which we crossed the road to the ruins of the ancient Abbey to pray the Rosary in the crypt of the Lady Chapel. The day finished with an hour of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and confessions, followed by Benediction.
We would like to thank all those who helped to make this pilgrimage possible, in particular Dom Bede Rowe, the Rector of the Shrine and Celebrant of the High Mass, the other Sacred Ministers, Fathers Bradley and Redman, MC Charles Bradshaw, and the Shrine administrator, Kim Woolmer.
