For an interesting discussion about celebrating the Feast of the Ascension on Thursday, its relationship to Pentecost and Easter, have a look at the following link.

Feast of the Ascension

The congregational hymn translates as follows

Hail, Thou who man’s Redeemer art,
Jesus, the joy of every heart,
Great Maker of the world’s wide frame
And purest love’s delight and flame!
Our guide, our way to heavenly rest,
Be Thou the aim of every breast;
Be Thou the soother of our tears,
Our sweet reward above the spheres. Amen."

3rd Sunday After Easter, 7th May, and advance notice about Ascension Day

Paschal Time 2017

The Church rejoices because Christ is risen and has delivered us (Alleluia); so she sends up cries of joy (Introit), and sings the praises of God (Offertory).

We do hope you have had a blessed and peaceful Easter, and wish you the continued joy of the Paschal Season as we move through to Ascension and Pentecost Sunday.

This post gives information about the next times of Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form within the Diocese,

Holy Mass will take place this coming Sunday, 7th May at 3 p.m. , Sacred Heart, Morriston.

As we are now in the Month of May,  the Holy Rosary will be prayed fifteen minutes before the Mass, at 2.45 p.m.

On the Second Sunday of each Month,  Holy Mass is offered at St Therese, Sandfields, Port Talbot at 6 p.m.  For further information, please contact the parish directly.  Therefore, the next Holy Mass at Sandfields will be Sunday 14th May, 6 p.m. the Fourth Sunday after Easter.

We are also giving advance notice of Holy Mass on Ascension Day, Thursday 25th May at 7 p.m.

We hope that many people will be able to join us on these two occasions.

We will be updating the site shortly to show the full summary of forthcoming Mass times, and will be looking at new features to add to the site for our visitors.
