The early Easter has meant we weren’t able to celebrate two great feasts on their usual days, and they have been transferred to Low Week – that is, the second week after Easter.
The Solemnity of the Annunciation, normally 25 March, fell this year on Good Friday; and so will be transferred to Monday 4 April. Mass will be celebrated at 9:15am.
And we would have celebrated our Patronal Solemnity of St Cuthbert on 20 March, had that not been Palm Sunday; instead we will be celebrating St Cuthbert on Tuesday 5 April with be a sung Mass at 12:15pm. It is not often that we get to celebrate our holy patron in the splendour of the Easter light – so do come along and join the feast.
