The Feast of St Bede
Reopening Our Churches
The reopening of our churches, when it comes, will be a welcome but also challenging moment in the life of our worshipping communities, for it has to be done in a way that makes church buildings safe to use while we learn to live with the threat of a virus for which at the moment there is no vaccine.
New taskforce developing plans to reopen places of worship
Faith leaders and government agree to develop plan to enable phased and safe reopening of places of worship.
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday 23rd March all Catholic Churches are now CLOSED to the public.
However, due to the current unprecedented and exceptional times we are living in, permission has been given by the Pope for priests to celebrate Holy Mass on behalf of the faithful but without the participation of believers
and altar servers.
Please follow the link from the menu for the week's Mass Intentions.
Live Catholic Mass Online
Despite the fact that we can't gather for Mass in our churches, many priests and bishops are broadcasting their Masses live online.
At St Marie's Cathedral there is daily Mass, Monday - Saturday at 8.00am and
Sunday Mass at 11.00am.

At this difficult time, when some parishioners may well have a drop in income and will need to be more careful about expenditure, no one should feel under any obligation to give what they cannot afford. However if you do feel able to continue making your weekly offering you might want to consider setting up a standing order or sending a one off payment. Please quote your name as a reference and, if you usually donate by envelope, please also include the envelope number. Thank you to those who have already posted donations or enquired about bank transfers, your continued generosity towards the church is greatly appreciated.
