This evening, 22nd November there will be an Ordinariate Use Mass at Our Lady of Ransom Church on Grange Road at 7:30pm. This mass is being held to support “Red Wednesday,” a compaign by Aid to the Church in Need to highlight the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. As the charity highlights on their website Christians today are the largest faith group to suffer persecution. The Red comes from the colour of the blood shed. It is the colour the Church uses to celebrate the feast of any Martyr. ACN is asking Catholics to go to one extra Mass this week “for someone who can’t.” The intention for the mass is those who are persecuted for their faith and all are invited to wear something red. There will be a retiring collection for ACN.
