(There will also be confessions at 09:30)
Fr Mark Hogan would like to invite you to take part in a Diocesan day of prayer for the New Evangelisation (Sharing the Joy of the Gospel) from 10am to 5pm on Saturday 14th May, the eve of Pentecost at St. Joseph’s Church, Basingstoke (RG22 6TY).
It is vital that we begin with prayer and that all our efforts are sustained by prayer. All our initiatives must be rooted in our relationship with Jesus Christ, so that it is his will which we seek to discern and follow, and his joy which we experience for ourselves and share with others. How can you take part? In one of three main ways:
Maundy Thursday - MASS OF THE LAST SUPPER 7.30pm in Church
‘Watching’ until Night Prayer at 11.30pm (in St Joseph’s Foyer)
Prayer Breakfast St Andrew’s Church - 10am
Family Liturgy St Joseph’s Church -12 noon
Celebration of the Lord’s Passion 3.00pm in Church
Office of Readings & Morning Prayer at 9am
St Joseph’s Church/ Polish Blessing of Food 12 noon
Easter Vigil (Saturday) - THE RESURRECTION 8.00pm
(service of Light, Liturgy of Word, Mass of Easter Night, Liturgy of Baptism, Confirmation & Eucharist)
Easter Sunday—9am & 11am
Pope Francis has stated that he would like Friday March 4th through Saturday March 5th to be set aside as "24 hours for the lord".
During this period St Josephs will host 24 hours of the celebration of the sacrament of reconciliation.
We will provide Eucharistic Adoration throughout the night.
There will also be various opportunities for prayer and public devotion including mass, stations of the cross, rosary etc and a penitential liturgy.
Below is a schedule of events, please join us at any time:
