Today we celebrate Pentecost Sunday, the day on which the Holy Spirit inspired the Apostles to go out and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is still with the Church and He inspires each one of us anew today to proclaim the message of Jesus to a world that needs His presence and His love.
Pentecost Sunday Mass
Canon Isaac will celebrate Mass at 10.00am today. You can join Canon via the webcam on the homepage of the Parish website. You are encouraged, not only to listen and watch the Mass, but to take part by making the responses in your own home.
Blessing of Oils
The Archbishop will celebrate the Mass of Pentecost at St. David’s Cathedral at 11am – the mass will be streamed on the Cathedral website. During that Mass he will consecrate the Holy Oils (as he was unable to do when the Chrism Mass was cancelled). The Holy Oils will be used at Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination and the Oil of the Sick. These may be collected by the Deans “…when this is over”. In other words, when we are able to move about freely and the restrictions on social distancing are reduced.
Pentecost National Rosary Relay Rally
Today each Diocese/Eparchy/Ordinariate from Scotland, Wales and England has been allocated a ‘Rosary Hour’ so that there is a rolling programme of prayer to Our Lady on this the last day of May.
The hour allocated for the Archdiocese of Cardiff is from midday to 1pm. You are all encouraged to stop for some time during this hour to pray the Rosary, alone or with the other members of your household.
At midday Canon Isaac will lead the Regina Caeli followed by five decades of the Rosary from St. Teilo’s via the livestream. You are welcome to join Canon in these prayers online.
This week’s parish newsletter can be found here.
Canon mentioned during Mass the Pentecost Dove sign, which the younger members of the parish can download and colour in. You could even cut it out and hang it in your home or in your window next to your NHS rainbow.
