COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic
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 listen to the video below from Cardinal Vincent Nichols and 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 Mass readings and Gospel, along with a reflection on our Readings and Reflections page. On Sundays, we will include prayers of the faithful and a children's activity.
Link to Southwark Churches that currently broadcast Mass. Please check the individual times of parish Masses. Please note that this list may change in the weeks ahead.
