Lenten Station Mass for the Cardiff Deanery
Station Masses began in Rome around the second or third century. The Pope would celebrate a Solemn Mass in one of the major basilicas and the most important churches in the city.
The Most Reverend George Stack, the Archbishop of Cardiff has recently revived this tradition in the Archdiocese and each year travels to the Deaneries of the Archdiocese to celebrate a Station Mass during Lent.
His Grace the Archbishop and the priests of the Deanery will celebrate the Lenten Station Mass for the Cardiff Deanery at St. Teilo's on Wednesday 25th February at 7.00pm.
The coming together of the people and priests of the diocese around our Archbishop reminds us of our Roman heritage and encourages us to worship together and to pray for one another as we prepare for Easter. The practice of Station Masses was revived by Pope Leo XIII and St. Pope John XXIII, and is carried on today.
Refreshments will follow after in the Church Hall.
