Worship

The worship at St John’s is centred around the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, guaranteed by the continuity of apostolic order.

WorshipMass is celebrated every day of the week, with an Evening Mass on Monday and 'Market Mass' at lunchtime on Thursday.

Sunday Mass at 10.30am uses the liturgical texts and readings from Common Worship. The Friday Mass uses texts from the Book of Common Prayer and the 1928 modifications.

Vestments are worn during all Masses and incense is used each Sunday at 10.30am in addition to Solemnities and other Holy Days. Mass is usually sung on Sundays at 10.30am, Holy Days and Festivals, with settings varying from Murray to Rizza.

Morning and Evening Prayer are said publicly every day except Wednesday, Fr Brendan's day 'free of duties'.

We welcome the participation of members of the congregation as readers, servers and singers.
