The Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle’s phone app is now the place to find all your Mass times for Christmas.
The new app will also help you get more out of Advent. Advent helps us prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus, and is a time to be deliberate in listening to God.
This season is a great opportunity to use Pray As You Go, another button on the phone app. This provides a time for reflection even in the middle of a busy day. It can be listened to in the car, as you walk, run or exercise, and will help you to prepare for Christmas and get more out of the Advent season.
The app also includes buttons for normal daily Mass times, events, news, daily readings and homilies.
The Find Mass function enables you to find out the location of the nearest mass to you and what time it will be held while the Events function is a calendar which has details of major events in the Diocese.
Tapping on the News button will take the user straight to news of the day while Homilies will take you to the highly-popular Doohan Discourse - the home of homilies delivered by Father Andrew Doohan, our Vicar-General.
The free app is available now through Google Play and the App Store.
