There is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after morning Mass (from 10 am Tuesdays) until 10.00 pm each day in the chapel at St Dunstan's Church. Everybody is welcome to join us for this special time of prayer.
Our Parish is celebrating the
Year of the Eucharist
Prayer for the Year of the Eucharist
Risen Lord Jesus,
on the road to Emmaus
you made yourself known to your disciples
in the breaking of bread.
Give to us, your disciples today, the same gift of faith,
that will open the eyes of our hearts
to recognise your true and real presence,
your precious body and blood,
in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.
Give us also a desire to love you more and more,
so in contemplating your wonderful presence,
we may glimpse the glory of heaven
prepared for all who love you. Amen.
Holy Mary, the First Adorer of the Lord, pray for us.
St. Jude, Apostle of Jesus, pray for us.
St. Dunstan, Teacher of the Faith, pray for us.

24th and 25th February
Deacon Stephen Morgan directs our thoughts on the Eucharist and Mission: ‘Ite Missa est - Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life.’
Stephen Morgan is from the Diocese of Portsmouth where he serves as a Permanent Deacon. He is the Oeconomus and Secretary to the Portsmouth Diocesan Trustees. He undertakes pastoral duties in the Catholic parishes of Lymington, Brockenhurst and New Milton.
17th and 18th March
Dom Hugh Somerville Knapman OSB, focuses our thoughts on the Eucharistic Prayer of the Mass: ‘from the rising of the sun to its setting a pure sacrifice may be offered to your name.’
Dom Hugh is a monk of the Benedictine Order at Douai Abbey. He is the administrator of the abbey church, Sacristan, webmaster, co-editor of The Douai Magazine, and sits on the Abbot’s council.
28th and 29th April
Fr Alan Robinson directs our thoughts on Eucharistic adoration and reparation: ‘to us your servants, who though sinners, hope in your abundant mercies.’
Fr Alan is a priest of the Archdiocese of Westminster and currently Parish Priest of Corpus Christi church, Maiden Lane, Covent Garden. Corpus Christi is the home of the Sodality of the Blessed Sacrament.
Although most events will take place at St. Dunstan’s as this is the venue for daily adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the visiting preachers will usually be preaching both Saturday night and Sunday morning so that those from St. Jude’s, and those who usually come to Mass on Sunday night, will have the chance to come to one of the other Masses over the weekend if they wish.
Thoughts on the Holy Eucharist
“Every Holy Hour we make so pleases the Heart of Jesus that it is recorded in Heaven and retold for all eternity!”
St. Teresa of Calcutta
“Perpetual Adoration extends its influence far beyond the individual adorers, touching their homes and families and reaching out to the parish community and beyond.”
Pope Paul VI
“Each time you approach the Blessed Sacrament remember that Jesus has been waiting for you for twenty centuries for this personal visit from you.”
St. Josemaria Escriva
