Live-Streamed Mass Information



As Mass will no longer be public until further notice, we will be live-streaming Mass every Sunday at 10.45am and also the services of Holy Week.

We are so pleased to be able to give this opportunity for everybody needing to stay at home. It will not feel the same but you are not alone The Spirit of Almighty God will unite us, make us one as we worship in his name as his family as you follow the Mass here at St. Francis.

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
