Trinity Sunday marks the start of the Sundays in Ordinary Time. The usual Sunday masses will be held on Trinity Sunday, and there will be a festal procession with High Mass at 11.00 am.
Corpus Christi — Thursday 30 May
A special Mass in thanksgiving for the Holy Communion is held on the first Thursday after the end of the Easter season. This service of Corpus Christi has strong links with the mass commemorating the Institution of the Sacrament of the Eucharist on Maundy Thursday. High Mass will be celebrated at 6.15 pm, and will be followed by the Procession of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. A light meal will be available in the hall after this service.
St Peter's Day — Sunday 30 June
Our Patronal Festival will be celebrated on Sunday the 30th June, transferred from the 29th. See below for details of High Mass and the following lunch.
