This page provides links to resources to help sustain our faith at a time when it is still not possible for everyone to come to the church for Mass.
Live Streaming of Mass
While access to liturgies in church remains restricted, you can participate in Masses that are streamed online. For details, see churchservices.tv. There is also information about live-streamed Masses within the Archdiocese of Westminster.
Prayer in Isolation
Prayer can draw us together, even when we are physically separated from each other. A resource that can be used by individuals to deepen that sense of solidarity in prayer is available here. It includes the Spiritual Communion that we can offer while we are unable to share fully in the Sacraments. You can read today’s Mass readings each day at Universalis.com.
Life in Community
The closest that we come to an experience of the communal life of the Early Church in today’s world is in monastic communities. A programme broadcast on BBC4 on Palm Sunday 2021 gives an insight into the lives of the monks at Mount St Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire. You can watch the programme on the BBC iPlayer.
Pause for Faith
Fr Stephen Wang, who presents the Sycamore faith-exploration series, has been streaming videos covering a wide range of topics about our Catholic faith. If you would like to take this opportunity to deepen your understanding of the faith, you can access the videos on the Pause for Faith YouTube channel.
Virtual Children’s Liturgy.
CAFOD are offering a virtual children’s liturgy on Sunday morning. Register to join at CAFOD Children’s Liturgy, where you will also find other resources that can be shared with children.
