Deanery Lenten Station Mass
These Masses during Lent used to be very popular, with standing room only for late comers. This is rarely seen now, however. Leicester and Leicestershire used to be two deaneries but now is all one under the Dean, Rev Monsignor John Hadly VF. The Station Mass is an opportunity for members of the different Parishes to come together. The Mass is at 7:30pm but several Priests will be hearing confessions from 7:00pm. As the central act of worship in the Catholic Church, the Sacrifice of the Eucharist is called the Mass, derived from the Latin word missa meaning dismissal. Always offered in the name of and for the entire Church, the Mass maintains a public and social character no matter where or under what circumstances it is performed.
