Regarding the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately we must suspend gathering for public acts of worship in our Catholic churches in England and Wales. This will take effect from Friday evening, 20th March 2020, until further notice.
Here at St Vincent's I will be celebrating Mass everyday at 10am but the Church will be closed. You are encouraged to join me in spirit as I celebrate Mass. After this Mass, the Church will be openfor praying before the Blessed Sacrament until approx 7pm.
To continue to mark the significance of Sunday as the Lord’s Day, I would encourage all those whoare able to read the Scripture readings of the Sunday Mass and to pray the rosary. We can also make a Spiritual Communion which prayerfully expresses our faith in Christ’s presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
You can read a Pastoral Letter written by Archbishop of Southwark John Wilson by clicking here.
Also of interest is a video from the Archbishop of Westminster Cardinal Vincent Nichols. In the short video he offers a message of hope with Jesus Christ at its centre.
Lastly I want to ask you all to stay safe out there, look after your families and yourselves during this time.
