The Feast of Saints Peter and Paul: June 29th

Thursday the 29th of June is the Feast of Saints Peter & Paul, a Holy Day of Obligation in the Catholic Church (in England & Wales).

Mass will be held at 10am in Totnes, and 6pm at the Sacred Heart in Kingsbridge. There will be no Mass for this feast in Salcombe. Those who are able to attend should celebrate Holy Mass at one of these services.

Both apostles share the same feast day, for these two were one; and even though they suffered on different days, they were as one. Peter went first, and Paul followed. And so we celebrate this day made holy for us by the apostles’ blood. Let us embrace what they believed, their life, their labours, their sufferings, their preaching, and their confession of faith.
St. Augustine of Hippo, 395 AD
