PRECAUTIONS REGARDING CORONAVIRUS

IN THE WHOLE DIOCESE OF DENMARK PUBLIC MASSES AND OTHER GATHERINGS ARE CANCELED.

THE BISHOP SAID IN HIS STATEMENT THAT NOT ATTENDING SUNDAY MASS IS NOT CONSIDERED SIN IN THE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES.

THE CHURCH ENCOURAGES TO PRACTISE SPIRITUAL COMMUNION.

You can for example pray this prayer:

An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Ash Wednesday Mass + Cross of Ashes

Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.

The mass will start in Saint Augustine’s Church at Jagtvej 183D Copenhagen on February 26th at 6 pm.

The Paschal Vigil Mass

Paschal Vigil is the first official celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. History says that during Vigil, the people are baptized and the adult catechumens are taken into complete communion with the Holy Church. Vigil takes place during the dark hours between Holy Saturday sunset and Easter Day sunrise.

The liturgy will start in Saint Augustine’s Church at Jagtvej 183D Copenhagen on April 11th at 9 pm.

The Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion and Death

On Good Friday we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins (1 John 1:10). It is followed by Easter, the glorious celebration of the day Jesus was raised from the dead, heralding his victory over sin and death and pointing ahead to a future resurrection for all who are united to him by faith (Romans 6:5).

The liturgy will start in Saint Augustine’s Church at Jagtvej 183D Copenhagen on April 10th at 6 pm.

The Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Good Friday, we know. And Easter most certainly. But what is Maundy Thursday? Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, believed to be the day when Jesus celebrated his final Passover with His disciples. Most notably, that Passover meal was when Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in an extraordinary display of humility. He then commanded them to do the same for each other.

The liturgy will start in Saint Augustine’s Church at Jagtvej 183D Copenhagen on April 9th at 6 pm.

Stations of the Cross

Accompany Jesus on the path of passion which brings you to resurrection. Let the Lord lead you through your own dark valley towards broad horizons. Defeat the fear of suffering and death together with Him who is our life. Come and participate in the Stations of the Cross.

The service takes place in Saint Augustine’s Church at Jagtvej 183D, København from 5.00 to 5.45 pm.

Fr. Paweł Beń SJ leads the service on 6.03, 20.03, 3.04.
Fr. Paweł Rakowski SJ on 28.02, 13.03, 27.03.

Lenten Confession

Confession takes place in the chapel of Saint Augustine’s Church at Jagtvej 183D, København from 5.00 to 5.45 pm.

Fr. Paweł Beń SJ listens to confessions on 28.02, 13.03, 27.03.

Saturday Adorations

‘For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.’ (Ps 36:9) Come and join us for the adoration where you will be charged with New Energy and look at your life in a New Light!

Hey cayacers! I want to start longer adorations at Saint Augustine’s on this Saturday. Same day we commemorate Saint Paul’s conversion in the Catholic Church. What a coincidence! For the next ones always check our calendar cause they may not happen on regular basis every week.

Blessings!

Christmas greetings!

Dear Friends, I would like to wish to all of you the joy that finds its source in Lord’s nativity and the joy of being reborn in Him! These days I pray in a special way that you may experience it!

Fr Pawel Ben SJ
