This Parish website and our Facebook page will continue to be updated as regularly as possible to keep our Parish Community alive with news, information, scripture readings and updates from Fr Frank.

Scroll down this page to see all our latest news posts (& click 'older posts' at the bottom of the page to look back over the previous news.)

We are open for private prayer during the week and for our public Masses. 

February 2022 - Following the easing of restrictions here is the main update. 
*The MAIN defense we have is to be fully vaccinated–The Bishops of England & Wales support & encourage us ALL to be vaccinated to protect ourselves & each other. 
*PLEASE do not attend church if you have symptoms of covid or have tested positive. 
*Transmission is mainly through the air so we will continue to ventilate the church & we still encourage mask wearing when inside and whilst singing. 
*We will keep a small socially distanced seating area at the front of the church for those who are vulnerable or concerned & we ask people to be sensitive to others’ space around them. 
*Touch transmission is now seen as a much smaller risk but we still encourage you to sanitise your hands on arrival & Ministers will continue to sanitise their hands before Holy Communion. 
* We are now able to reduce our sanitising regime between Masses. 
*Communion under one form will continue for the time being & we will not reintroduce the holy water stoops until the risks are much lower
*Lighting of votive candles will now be brought back. 
All these decisions are in order to add that extra layer of safety for the good of our whole community.

Let us pray for the world to recover from this pandemic and pray for those whose lives have been lost. God bless you all. Fr Frank.

* Although there is still no Sunday Obligation we feel it is a safe place to visit, with all the measures in place, so please attend the Mass each week that best suits your circumstances. Thank you.

If you are continuing to shield or cannot return to Mass quite yet, you can visit the Church Services website to watch Mass from our Cathedral each day at 9.30am.

PARISH OFFICE: Please note that the Parish Office is open a few days per week so emails will be checked periodically. In the event of an urgent query, please call Fr Frank at the presbytery on 0117 9833939.
