Dear Parishioners,

On Wednesday 29 June we celebrate the Solemnity of SS. Peter and Paul. It is a holy day of obligation and we have Mass at 10am and 7.30 pm. There is also a Traditional Latin Mass at 12.00 noon. 

O God, who on the Solemnity of the Apostles Peter and Paul give us the noble and holy joy of this day, grant, we pray, that your Church may in all things follow the teaching of those through whom she received the beginnings of right religion.   Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.

St Paul (c. 1611) by Peter Paul Rubens

Best Wishes, Father Behruz Rafat
