On Sundays and other Holy Days, the Priest returns to the centre of the altar, removes his maniple, genuflects before the Blessed Sacrament and ascends to the pulpit.
The Epistle and Gospel may be read in English.
Notices of forthcoming days of fasting or abstinence are made and forthcoming services are announced. The banns of marriage are read and the Priest commends the souls of the recently departed or those dangerously ill to the faithful.
A sermon is then preached to instruct the congregation in an aspect of the Faith.
