Coronavirus (COVID–19) Pandemic

Following the national guidance of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, there will be no public celebrations of Mass and other services/activities (First Holy Communion classes, Confirmation classes, Mothers’ Day celebrations etc.) in our church from Saturday 21st March 2020, until further notice.

Following the Prime Minister’s address last night (23 March 2020), Archbishop John Wilson has given the mandate that, with immediate effect, without any exceptions, all our churches and chapels across the Archdiocese must remain closed to the public until further notice.
In order to implement this fully, and embrace the ‘stay at home’ policy, the private celebrations of Mass, which may continue behind closed doors, must now be celebrated by the priest alone, without servers, readers or cantors.

We have put together a collection of useful resources, from live streaming Mass to Children’s Liturgy. Click here to view.
