How We Can Help

Mass for the fourth Sunday of Advent saw a team of seven Extraordinary Ministers - all women - helping the priest, even to the extent of relieving him of having to purify the sacred vessels: still, that meant that he had time before the Blessing to discuss Saturday's football results.

My daughter described the music at Mass on Christmas Day as "like a cheesy pop concert". It was.

We can help. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal for England and Wales is available as a pdf download here. We can help our busy priests by reading it carefully so that we can point out helpfully any accidental mistakes which have been made before they become institutionalised.

That will make us popular, won't it!
