The call to live our faith during the challenge presented by Corona Virus

Catholic Bishops of England & Wales' Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

After thought and prayer, and in the light of health care recommendations, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England & Wales have asked that we suspend all public worship in our Churches with immediate effect.

The Bishops wish to reassure the faithful that in the light of this decision the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is suspended for this time. The Letter is available below:
