Prayers for when we cannot attend Mass

27.03.20

1.Bishop Mark writes to draw your attention to an initiative of the Holy Father today (Friday) and to ask you to inform your parishioners in whatever way is practical.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION IN SAINT PETER’S SQUARE, URBI ET ORBI BLESSING AND PLENARY INDULGENCE
At this time of crisis in order to offer intercession for the world and consolation to the faithful, Pope Francis will preside over a time of prayer and Eucharistic Adoration (without a congregation of the lay faithful) in Saint Peter’s Square at 5.00 pm (UK time) on Friday 27th March. This will be streamed live by Vatican News https://www.vaticannews.va/en.html
At the end of this time of prayer, the Holy Father will impart the Urbi et Orbi Blessing and grant a Plenary Indulgence to all who participate via communications media.

At Shrewsbury Cathedral we will be united in prayer with the Holy Father in the livestreamed Eucharistic Holy Hour and Evening Prayer of the Church.
Whatever our circumstances let us also seek to be together for this hour of prayer with the Holy Father at 5.00 pm for the needs of so many at this time.
