As you can see from today's statement from the Bishops of England and Wales (click here), sadly there will be no more public celebrations of the Mass from Friday evening. We have already cancelled Mass tomorrow at St Michael's but the Funeral Mass on Friday 20th for Gabriel Langan RIP will be going ahead as planned.
All other gatherings such as choir practice, youth clubs, parish council meetings, children's catechesis, children's First Reconciliation and so on will also be cancelled and rearranged at a later date.
The Churches will be open, however, for individual personal prayer. We will be looking into organising times when they will be open and a schedule will be published on the bulletin. The bulletin will still be printed this weekend so that copies can be taken to people who do not have access to the internet.
I will be celebrating Mass each day for you all. We are in the process of sorting out live streaming so that you will be able to participate in Mass online. The schedule for these Masses will be put on the bulletin this weekend.
We also hope to live stream Adoration and Vespers on Sunday afternoons.
Please pass on this information to any friends you know who have no access to the internet.
Let us pray for one another in this difficult time.
