Nightfever always begins with the celebration of Mass at 18:00.
This is because Jesus in the Eucharist is at the centre of Nightfever and, after Mass, He is placed on the altar for adoration.
To create an atmosphere of prayer, musicians begin to play and priests arrive to offer the Sacrament of Confession.
This space of prayer and beauty is what we invite our visitors into, so that they can encounter Jesus for themselves.
Shortly after Mass, teams of volunteers go out onto the streets of Soho to invite passersby into the church.
This invitation is simple: to light a candle inside the church.
No matter how someone responds, this is a moment of Christ-centred encounter, where countless seeds are sown in the hearts of those who do not yet know Jesus or who have left the Church.
For those who accept the invitation, this may be the first time that they have set foot in a church in a long time and so it is important that they are guided and welcomed.
Once inside, they are free to light a candle, to write down a prayer, to speak to a priest, and to stay for as long as they would like.
Here, we entrust the person to Jesus, knowing that He will do the rest.
If you would like to get involved in Nightfever, please get in touch with us.
‘Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full, in his wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of his glory and grace.’
Sign up to the parish to know what’s going on at St Patrick’s and how you can get involved.
If you are passionate about our mission then we would love you to join our team.
Step back from the noise of the city and encounter God in the stillness and peace of contemplative prayer.
