Today in the 1962 calendar it is the Feast of the Ascension, although in this country the obligation and celebration of the Feast has been transferred to next Sunday.

However Mass will be offered for the feast today in two places this evening in this diocese.

7.00p.m. at English Martyrs, Alexandra Rd. South, Whalley Range, Manchester.
7.30p.m. at St. Marie's, Manchester Road, Bury. High Mass.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the late posting of these Masses. I only yesterday came out of hospital and am suffering from pneumonia, probably brought on by surgery three weeks ago for a burst appendix and removal of part of my bowel.
I am still extremely weak and would ask for your prayers and would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have already offered prayers. Mass will be offered for your intentions.
