Live-stream from Fr Bart
I am quite sure that you all know about the need of everyone of us to stay at home. Below I am presenting to you the new schedule of live-stream prayer and social events which I am hoping to share with everyone. If you would like to join in just click the name of the event 3 minutes before the beginning of it. Everything else that already happened is available straight away from this page. The description of what every evening session is about you can find on the bottom of this page. Any feedback and your ideas text me on 07305831925 or e-mail on email@example.com. May God bless you all. Fr Bart
Live stream Mass
Due to the current Coronavirus crisis, the celebration of the Mass is live-streamed from our church every day at 9.57 am ready for 10.00 am start. Unfortunately recently we have experienced some interference and connection faults which we were unable to fix as Fr Bart had already started celebrating Mass. Should this happen again, hopefully anyone connected to take part will managed to find another Mass by accessing Church Services TV here where live Masses are celebrated every day throughout the day in churches in the UK and Ireland. However, thanks to one of our kind and skilful parishioners we have been provided with much stable internet connection so now, God’s willing, we should be far more stable in the live-streaming.
To participate at Mass online from our church please click here from about 9.57 am. You can text Fr Bart on the parish mobile (07305831925) to give a feedback about the connection and problems you may experience. Fr Bart will try to respond at around lunchtime. If the connection doesn’t work try to refresh the screen with the F5 button on your keyboard or log in again from this website. Also, some people say that the connection is better if you participate in the Mass using your mobile rather that a PC or a laptop. Check it yourself. If you would like to help us promoting live-stream Masses from our parish, please, click here and watch the video to find out how to do it. Thank you for your kind co-operation.
When the celebration of the Mass reaches the time of Holy Communion, all participants can receive Spiritual Communion by joining Fr Bart in saying the Act of Spiritual Communion. If for whatever reason participants are unable to pick up this prayer from the porch of the church, a downloadable version is available by clicking here. Thank you.
Live-stream evening sessions
These are the evening prayer and social sessions that I am to live-stream at about 18.30 every day (after dinner for some, before supper for others) in order to connect with the whole parish and schools. What came to my mind is this:
Monday – Lectio Divina – is a type of Biblical meditation happening in five simple steps. Every session is being narrated and led for a greater understanding and experience of God’s presence in his Word.
Tuesday – ‘Silly Circus’ – is something very lighthearted, like a presentation of made-up social games for all the family or not necessary serious games and challenges.
Wednesday – ‘Where is Jesus?’- is an introduction to the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with a reflection on different images, statutes and objects which we have in our church. This session lasts for an hour.
Thursday – ‘Once upon a time…’ – is a serious of simple stories that I read to the children.
Friday – Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with prayers in different intentions.
Saturday – Adoration with the Rosary.
Sunday – ‘Smovie’ – is a short review on the family film each week after which the whole household can sit together and, using different channels, switch to watching something funny, wise and relaxing. Btw. The name of the session is to reflect smoothie – something healthy, refreshing, tasty and easy-going.
I would be very grateful for your comments. Please, tell me, what you think about the whole idea, the names and content of the sessions as well as the new ways in which this can be done. I am intending to stream every session for about 15 minutes (apart from Wednesday) and keep them available on this page. Please, share you thoughts with me on 07305831925 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Fr Bart
