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, your priests will continue to celebrate Mass on a daily basis – but without the faithful present during the pandemic crisis.
Holy Mass is live-streamed (via our Facebook page) from St John Vianney’s at 12noon: Monday – Saturday and at 10.15am & at 6.00pm on Sundays.
Sunday Benediction takes place at 4.30pm and is live-streamed via our Facebook page.
The Rosary is recited online (via our Facebook page) each weeknight (not Saturday and Sunday) in May at 6.00pm.
Thus, the obligation for the faithful to attend Holy Mass on a Sunday or Holy day of Obligation, at this time, 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 and secured until further notice – as with all churches and places of worship in England and Wales at this time.
