• Masses for the sick and NHS


Mass for the Sick and their Families, NHS front-line workers and those working in Social Care

 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 next 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

4 June                       Bishop John Arnold                         Salford Cathedral

11 June                     Bishop Patrick McKinney               Nottingham Cathedral

18 June                     Archbishop Bernard Longley        Birmingham Cathedral
