|Further to the earlier announcements, in the light of information that is coming to us from government sources and the resultant lock down impacting the whole of the United Kingdom, it is for us an opportune moment to review and reflect upon what we have achieved so far in terms of providing a safe setting in which to celebrate our worship. As well as welcoming the decision of the government to allow public worship to continue, Bishop Robert has stressed that the first priority should be our personal and family members safety and to discuss the situation with our loved ones before making a decision as to whether or not we attend church.
For as long as the lock down lasts therefore (from week commencing 10th January), Mass will be celebrated at St Aidan’s on Sunday (10.00am) and Wednesday (9.30am) only and will continue to be held at St Bernadette’s at 11.30am each Sunday. Private Masses with no congregation will be celebrated outside of those times. Taking care of our own health, both mental and physical is an absolute necessity in these troubled times.
Bookings can be made using the usual link below from Monday morning until Thursday evening:
