Masses for the Sick and their Families, NHS Front-Line workers and those working in Social Care
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every person in very many different ways. Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love.
Front-line workers in hospitals and in care homes are giving exceptional service to those who are vulnerable at this time.
In order to show a spiritual solidarity with all those who are involved in the ways described above, each week from next Thursday, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate Mass in their Cathedral which will be live-streamed for people to join. This will take place every Thursday at 7pm.
