Coronavirus Response Updated Wed 18 March

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have announced today that from Friday evening, all public Masses will be suspended indefinitely. The last public Mass for the time being in our church will be at 10am on Friday 20 March. Masses and confessions will continue as advertised in our newsletter until then.

Even after Friday, the church will continue to be open for private prayer each day. The Fathers will do their best to make confession available throughout this period.

There will be further information from us later today.

The statements from the Bishops’ Conference can be read below.
