Our Masses – Public celebrations of Mass are suspended in England & Wales until further notice
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales announced on Wednesday 18th March 2020 that we must not, at this time, gather for public acts of worship in our churches. Consequently, all Sunday, Holyday and weekday public Masses are cancelled in our Parish and indeed in every Catholic Church and parish across England and Wales as from Friday evening, 20th March 2020 and lasting until further notice.
Thus, the obligation for the faithful to attend Holy Mass on a Sunday or Holy day of Obligation is removed, until further notice.
Priests will continue to celebrate Mass on a daily basis – but without the faithful present. Our Church is now closed until further notice – as with all churches and places of worship in England and Wales at this time.
