Churches Re-opening

Places of worship, closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, have been allowed to open for private prayer from 15 June 2020 and for public worship from 4 July 2020. There are, of course, a lot of things to consider in deciding when to reopen and there is guidance available from the government, the archbishops (nationally) and the diocese. Please download the document linked below which seeks to bring together the different matters and advice that need to be considered. It is quite a lengthy and detailed document, reflecting the complexity of the situation with which we are faced.

Mass Times & Services

As we gradually reopen our churches following the months of lockdown, we are monitoring the number and the timing of Masses and other services and ready to adjust things as necessary, even at short notice. Please see the weekly newsletter for up to date information on the times when the churches are open or services are being live-streamed.

Livestream Masses are viewed from our Facebook page

Helping Hand Fund

In response to needs in our parish, school and wider community, we would like to create a "Helping Hand Fund". There are families in our community who struggle to ensure their children have adequate school uniform, the tools they need for study and good nutritious food to eat.
