MASS FOR THE SICK AND THEIR FAMILIES, NHS FRONT-LINE WORKERS AND THOSE WORKING IN SOCIAL CARE

(From Rev Canon Christopher Thomas , General Secretary, Catholic Bishops' Conference of England & Wales)

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales recognise that this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every person in our countries. Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love. Our front-line workers in hospitals and in care homes all over our lands are giving exceptional service to those who are vulnerable at this time.
In order to show a spiritual solidarity with all those who are involved in the ways described above, each week from this Thursday, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate Mass in their Cathedral which will be live-streamed for people to join. This will take place EVERY THURSDAY AT 7.00pm.

Father Nigel will be offering Mass at Sacred Heart Church at the same time (7.00pm) on those Thursdays, so while we may be watching the live streamed Bishop's Mass, Mass for the same intention would be being offered at the same time in our parish.

23rd April Cardinal Vincent Nichols Westminster Cathedral
30th April Bishop Richard Moth Arundel Cathedral
7th MayBishop Marcus Stock Leeds Cathedral
14th MayBishop Robert Byrne CONewcastle Cathedral
21st MayBishop Mark DaviesShrewsbury Cathedral
28th MayBishop Terence DraineyMiddlesbrough Cathedral

Father Nigel suggested we start a WhatsApp group for the whole parish so we can keep in contact with one another. Barbara has kindly agreed to set this up. She is contacting everyone she can. If you have not been invited and you don't know her number please let me know by emailing me(Aileen) and I will forward your mobile number to her. (I do not like to advertise her number on the web, and the email address I am giving you is not my family/friends one).
