Our Liturgies are intrinsically the same as those celebrated throughout the Catholic Church all over the world.

The Eucharist

For Holy Mass, our Ordinary Form is the 1962 edition of the Roman Missal promulgated by St John XXIII; however our Priests are free to choose from any edition of the Roman Missal that has been in recent use as an Extraordinary Form, including the First and Second Editions of the 1970 Missal of Blessed Paul VI, and the current Third Edition of the Roman Missal. In our Ordinary Form, the Mass is offered in Latin, though the Priest is free to choose to read the Epistle and Gospel in Latin or in the Vernacular language as is felt appropriate. In our Extraordinary Form, our Priests are free to celebrate in either Latin or the Vernacular Language. All this is subject to each Priest’s personal preference and to pastoral need.

In addition, some Priests make occasional use of the English Missal and the Customary of Our Lady of Walsingham, as used by Priests of the Personal Ordinariate in England and Wales.

Daily Prayer

The NCC encourages all members, clerical and lay, to pray daily, as a means of sanctifying our actions throughout the day. As with the celebration of the Eucharist, we use a variety of forms of prayer: the Roman Breviary in use in 1962, The Daily Office, from the 1970s, and other forms of prayer for the different times of the day. Examples of prayers for the morning and evening are available elsewhere on this website.

Prayer is about a conversation with God. It is not one-sided: just us talking to Him. We must leave time in silence to listen to what He has to say to us. Is it too much to ask for some time spent in silence each day?
