A special Mass for Mothers’ Day is to stream on the BCYS Instagram account on Mothers’ Day from the Chapel at Walsingham House at Abbotswick. Fr Dominic Howarth, who will celebrate the Mass, says: “We will be offering prayers for all mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and mother figures in our lives; on a weekend where many people won’t be able to visit their mums, we will wrap everyone in the warm embrace of the love of Christ, praying with you and for you, from near and far.”

To find the Mass on Instagram, sign up for an account if you don’t already have one, and search for BrentwoodCYS – the live stream will begin just before 10.30am.

During the Mass you will be able to add your Mothers’ Day messages, and these will be included in the prayers of the Mass.

Says Fr Dominic: “The interactive nature of Instagram will help people feel connected with each other in that spiritual context.”
