Rorate Mass by candlelight in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary as she waits to give birth to Christ – Friday 17th December 2021

The Rorate Mass originated in the Middle Ages and is a Votive Mass in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, during the season of Advent, when we contemplate the Incarnation of Jesus. A sizeable group of Catholics gathered at 6.30am in a darkened Holy Ghost Church to celebrate this very special Mass in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The entire Mass was conducted by candlelight and was presided over by Monsignor Kevin McGinnell.

Candlelit Vigil against Abortion – Sunday 31st October 2021

A candlelit Vigil was held outside the Abortion Clinic in Cardiff Road, Luton to pray for the end of abortion and to pray for all the babies killed physically in that building or via chemicals distributed from that building. One married couple approaching the witnesses said they were horrified that when they informed their doctor of her pregnancy, that without any prompting, the doctor offered an abortion. It just goes to show how far our culture is degenerating that a pregnancy
