Catholic Underground UK
At the beginning of July I'll be in Rome for a meeting of European Vocations Personnel. The meeting ends on Monday 6th July but I'll be flying back early to be in the parish for the next Catholic Underground session on Saturday 4th July. It's going to be a great evening because our guest performers will be the original Catholic Underground houseband who are coming all the way from New York. The photo gives you some idea of what to expect!
Catholic Underground starts with a Holy Hour at 7.15pm in the Church. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed and we sing vespers which is followed by a time of prayer lead by the music ministry. During Adoration priests are available to hear confessions.
After Benediction we go to the school hall for the second part of the evening: a time to chill out with refreshments and live musical entertainment. That's when the Friars will be performing. The evening ends with Compline at about 10.30pm - to give us time to clear things away before it gets too late!
Do join us for the evening. It's not often we have such a distinguished group!
