Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The Catholic Bishops’ of England and Wales gave guidance on 18th March 2020 that public services will be held in private and not open to the public until further notice. It is with regret that this action has to be taken, but we must follow the Bishops’ guidelines. Thus, the last Public Mass for the time being will be on Friday, 20th March.
