Resumption of Mass

Cardinal Vincent Nichols has issued a statement about the possibility of resuming public Mass from July 4th 2020 which is here

 To do this the safety of our church will have to be assured. 

There is information about this on our website especially on the pages

Reopening our churches.

What must be done?

Additional information from the diocese of Birmingham. The need for STEWARDS and for CLEANING, and the important point  that the priest cannot do this alone.

Our churches will gradually reopen for worship and prayer, but for our safety there will be certain precautions. Some of these will need help and planning. particularly in respect of cleaning, sanitization and social contact. A new page "Back to New Normal" here will hold what information we have. Please look at it and consider how you can help. Thanks.
