Update from 31st May 2022

Dear sisters and brothers,

Mass at St Martin de Porres Catholic Church, Luton remains at the times below:
 
- 6.30pm Vigil on Saturday
- 9am and 11am on Sunday
- 6.30pm on Monday
- 9.30am on Tuesday
- 12.30pm on Wednesday
- 6.30pm on Thursday
- 9.30am on Friday
 
The church will be open for private prayer and Adoration each Tuesday after 9.30am Mass & each Saturday from 5.30pm prior to the Vigil Mass.
 
Confession is every Saturday from 5.30-6.00pm.
(Occasionally there may need to be amendments made to Mass times.  It is advisable to check the weekly newsletter, available on our website, for up-to-date information).  
 
The obligation to attend Sunday Mass will return at Pentecost (5th June 2022)  However, it is not a breach of the Sunday Obligation if someone is unable to attend Mass in person due to a serious reason such as ill health, care for the sick or legitimate fear.  “Virtual viewing” of Mass online does not fulfil the Sunday Obligation. It may, however, be a source of continual spiritual comfort to those who cannot attend Mass in person, for example those who are elderly and sick, for whom the obligation does not apply.
If you are unable to attend Mass in person then feel free to join us via Facebook, the details of which you will find below or participate by praying through the readings of the Mass at home, which you’ll find on the newsletter elsewhere on this website.  In either of these ways you will be sharing in a spiritual communion with those of us who feel able to come together.

I will endeavour to live stream Masses on Saturdays & Sundays via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/StMartinsLuton/ (Please note that you do not need to have the Facebook App or an account in order to view these videos, as our account is public).

The Parish Office is now open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9.15am to 1.15pm.  Please note that it is still advisable to make any enquiries via phone or email.

With every blessing,

Simon
