Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

" I want to encourage everyone to visit – if possible, every day – especially amid life’s difficulties, the Blessed Sacrament of the infinite love of Christ and His mercy, preserved in our churches and often abandoned, to speak filially with Him, to listen to Him in silence, and to peacefully entrust yourself to Him.”

- Pope Francis

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will currently take place at 9:30 am before 10:00 am Masses at St Godric's and St Joseph's. Please see here for scheduled days. 

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is a form of silent adoration, a chance to retreat from the busyness of life and centre ourselves before the Lord in prayer. Exposition is available in St Godric's daily, and St Joseph's on a Tuesday evening before Mass.
