A Prayer during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Adoration

“Nowhere on earth are you more welcome,
nowhere on earth are you more loved than by Jesus,
living and truly present in the most Blessed Sacrament.
The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,
is the best time you will spend on earth.
Each moment that you spend with Jesus,
will deepen your union with Him
and will make your soul everlastingly
more glorious and beautiful in heaven,
and will help bring about an everlasting peace on earth”

Saint Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa)

In-Church Services

Weekly Eucharistic Adoration
We have Eucharistic Adoration every Friday for approximately one hour from 10:40 am (after 10:00 Mass) until 11:30 am.  All are welcome for quiet prayer.
Morning and Evening Prayer

Monday evening Rosary for our young people.   Are you concerned about reluctance of many young people to embrace the faith?   If so, please join us on Monday evenings at 6.00 pm in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Ballycullen Avenue, to pray the Rosary for this special intention. It will take only 15 minutes or so.  All are welcome. 

Weekday morning Rosary:  After 10.00 am Mass each morning the Rosary is prayed by an ad-hoc group of parishioners at the back of the church. Anyone who would like to join in is very welcome.

Miraculous Medal Novena

Every Monday after 10.00 am Mass we have this short novena consisting of four special prayers and prayer for our own intentions.

Annual Bereavement Mass

The Annual Bereavement Support Mass in November each year is organised by the Bethany Bereavement Support Group.

Please click here for more information on the Bethany Bereavement Support Group.

Tuesday Morning Prayer Service

There is no Mass in the parish church on Tuesdays.   Instead, we have a service provided by some of our Ministers of the Word and Ministers of the Eucharist. We are grateful to these volunteers for their willingness to provide this service.   It has become a necessary but vital part of parish life.

The service consists of a penitential rite, reading of the word of God (scripture readings of the day), intercessory prayers and distribution of Holy Communion.  No doubt, in future, we will need, and can expect to see further lay involvement in parish ministry.

Live Streaming of Mass

Mass is live streamed for anyone who wishes to tune in from their homes.

Although our suppliers have the camera focused on the Sanctuary, please be aware that you may be on camera from time to time.
