COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic
There will be no public masses or other services (aside from funerals) in the Church from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December, in line with the recent change in COVID-19 restrictions by the government.
Parishioners intentions during this period will be offered by the priests’ in their private daily Masses, morning and evening prayers, adorations, rosaries and personal prayers.
Sunday mass is available online during lockdown on our YouTube channel here.
Please ring the presbytery doorbell and the Church will be opened for you for private individual prayer. As you leave, kindly sanitise the place you have used.
Our parish office and the presbytery will be closed. For any emergency you may call the parish number or send us an email. As far as possible we will try to be of help to you.
If you have the NHS COVID-19 App on your mobile phone, the Church now has its own QR code for Test and Trace purposes. As you enter the Church, please scan the code using the Venue Check In function of the app. If you check in via this method, then you will not have to provide written contact details.
Please note that the Government has made it a mandatory requirement that face coverings must be worn in all places of worship, including at all Church services, from Saturday 8th August.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Catholic Church in England and Wales has today announced that all public Masses and other Services will be suspended from the evening of Friday 20 March 2020 (please note, the Stations of the Cross planned for that evening will no longer go ahead).
In line with the UK Government advice with respect to social distancing, all classes and activities within the parish are also cancelled until further notice.
Please read the letters from our Archbishop and Parish Priest, which go into further detail.
This website will continue to be updated to help parishioners with their personal and family worship during this difficult time - please check back on a regular basis.
While we are temporarily unable to physically attend and participate in Masses in the parish, we will be providing parishioners with the daily bible verses and mass intentions that will be offered by our parish priest on our Readings and Reflections page.
