Priorities in Basildon?

From the Newsletter of Our Lady and All Saints, Basildon (page 4):
Mass for the LGBT Community and their families in the Year of Mercy 
On Sunday 13th March, Fr Dominic will be preaching at the 6.30pm evening Mass in Brentwood Cathedral, with a particular welcome extended to those whose sexuality is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), and their families; everyone is very welcome to come, and to bring friends and family members. This Year of Mercy is a time to particularly welcome those who have felt excluded or rejected by the Catholic Church, and it is a sad truth that this has been the case for many within the LGBT community.

This raises a number of questions, which I will address in due course. For now, I merely add that I note on page 7 of the same newsletter:
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament   
Please note, this is no longer taking place.
Further comment seems superfluous.

But if you look, still Adoration there in the Syro-Malabar rite!
