Ad Orientem Mass

Ad Orientem Mass

On the first Friday of each month the Novus Ordo Mass will be celebrated in English ad Orientem. Ad Orientem worship is simply the priest orienting the sacrifice of the Mass towards Jesus Christ in the re-presentation of the Crucifixion, with the Priest and people facing the Lord. There will also be simple tone for the parts of the Mass and tradition hymns.

It is an authorised way to celebrate Holy Mass and remains so. There is a consistent gathering of about 30 people at these Masses and I am pleased to offer it to the parish for those who wish to attend. Everyone is welcome.
