There will be no Adoration or Mass on Tuesday 5th July, thank you for your understanding!
We are happy to announce that we will receive soon two new copes: a green one and a white cope with humeral veil and stole.
The green cope will serve on Sundays after Pentecost (there will be 21 Sundays in green before the end of the liturgical year). The white cope will be used even more frequently, twice a week during Benediction and on important feasts of Our Lord and His Blessed Mother.
With the help of the Liturgy Fund we were able to pay the Green Cope in full (see donation box).
Thanks to your generous donations, dear faithful, in the near future it will also be possible for us to pay for the white cope with stole and humeral veil (£1,414.00 total).
Please help us raise another £900.00 for this purpose.
May God reward you for all your help and material support, especially for your prayers on behalf of this apostolate of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Shrewsbury.

Holy Mass on Tuesday (6.30pm) is that of St. George, Protector of England.
He was martyred at Lydda (now in Israel) in about 303, during the persecution of Diocletian. Like so many saints of that period, the only fact that we can be certain of is his martyrdom. His cult spread quickly through both the East and the West, and the legend of St George and the Dragon only appeared some time afterwards. During the crusades, George was seen to personify the ideals of Christian chivalry, and he was adopted as the patron saint of several city states and countries, including England and Catalonia. King Richard I of England placed his crusading army under the protection of St George, and in 1222 his feast was proclaimed a holiday.
Sancte Georgi Ora Pro Nobis!
