Of your charity

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Christine Niczyperowicz who died peacefully today surrounded by her family and fortified by the Rites of Holy Mother Church following a valiant battle with cancer. May her soul rest in peace and the good Lord comfort her loving family.

From the bishop

I recently wrote to Bishop Stock dealing with several matters in these serious times.

He has permitted me to tell those priests who celebrate the EF that he is "very pleased" to give them permission to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the safety of the living in time of pestilence on any suitable weekday.

Moreover he is willing to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation according to the 1962 liturgical norms at St. Joseph's Bradford, again, as soon as the current restrictions on celebration of public liturgies has been lifted.

Oremus pro invicem.
