Quarant’Ore & Corpus Christi 2020

For those of us in isolation and quarantine, here’s *hopefully* something to look forward to for the end of Corona Time… 🦠

We will be holding our Annual Forty Hours from Thursday 11th June until Saturday 13th June 2020 and are excited to announce the following programme:

On Thursday 11th June at 7pm, Abbot Hugh Allan, O.Praem. of the Norbertines of St. Philip’s Priory, Chelmsford will open the Quarant’Ore with a Pontifical High Mass at the Faldstool.

Quarant’Ore will draw to a close at 6pm on Saturday 13th June at 6pm, with a Solemn Sung Mass, celebrated by the Rector of the Shrine, Fr Alan Robinson, KHS.

And we are delighted to announce that His Eminence, Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, has asked to be with us on Sunday 14th June at 11am to celebrate a Pontifical High Mass in the Ordinary Form, followed by a Procession of the Blessed Sacrament around Covent Garden.

Obviously, with the present crisis, none of this may be able to happen. The quarantine measures may well still be in place by June, and there may well still be travel restrictions… but we are hoping and praying that these celebrations will be able to take place.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
