PLEASE NOTE: Our BCYS Livestream Sunday Mass has now finished.

First Wednesday of the month Youth Mass will continue to be streamed (on Instagram) from Walsingham House at Abbotswick at 8pm (next Mass, Wednesday 2nd September)
Today is the transferred Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary – transferred from the usual date on 15th August, so as to celebrate it on a Sunday. The Feast celebrates the understanding that Mary’s body did not decay, but that she was raised up, body and soul, to heaven, at the moment of her “Dormition” (Falling asleep). It is a feast day which invites us to reflect deeply on Mary – a mother who understood enormous pain, and radiant joy. In this time of pandemic the steadfastness of Mary’s faith and love, in the most trying conditions, is an inspiration for us all. We’ll reflect more on that in Mass today – everyone is very welcome online!
