As we all know, Daylesford Abbey, as well as all churches, cannot currently hold normal Mass, open to the public in our chapel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, faith guides us through and gives us hope. Our faith in God reassures His love for us.
If attending mass was part of your life prior to the stay at home order, Daylesford Abbey is bringing daily Mass and reflection to you. Even though we cannot be physically together, we can help do our part in the fight against COVID-19 by coming together, while we remain apart.
Join Daylesford Abbey for live Mass, live gospel reading and reflection and guidance through these difficult times on our Facebook page. However, if you do not have a Facebook profile, the gospel live streams and online mass will also be broadcast live here on our website.
Please join Daylesford Abbey each weekday (Monday through Friday) at 11 am EST on our Facebook page for live streams of scripture reading and reflection. We will live stream Sunday mass at 9 am each Sunday. In the event you miss a live scripture reading or a live mass, please refer back to our Facebook videos, as they will remain on our page.
