This page provides links to resources to help sustain us in our faith, as we look to the ways in which we can support each other in our faith as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rebuilding the Community of Faith
Before the start of Lent 2022, Cardinal Vincent Nichols issued a Pastoral Letter encouraging all Catholics to return to full participation in the Sunday Eucharist. Following their plenary meeting at the beginning of May 2022, the Bishops of England and Wales issued a statement in which they recognise that the conditions for suspending the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation no longer apply. They urge all Catholics to attend Mass in person from the Solemnity of Pentecost (5th June 2022) unless prevented by sickness or other compelling reason.
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.
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.
