Sunday Mass Obligation The Catholic Bishops’ Conference have issued a statement,Sunday – it is our Day,. You can find the statement at https://www.cbcew.org.uk/sunday-it-is-our-day/. It is hoped that the Sunday Obligation will be restored by the First Sunday in Advent 2021. In the meantime, all Catholics are asked to do their best to participate in the celebration of the weekly Sunday Mass and to reflect deeply on the centrality of Sunday worship in the life of the Church.
Covid-19 Route Map: Step 4 GUIDANCE The Bishops have issued Guidance for “Step 4” beginning Monday 19th. The Bishops stress that the pandemic is not over, local conditions will vary, and “mitigations” should be carefully considered. These things remain - social distancing (although we may modify this), regular cleaning (again may be modified), stewards and taking collections in the same way. Holy water and the physical sign of peace are still suspended. Congregational singing (behind masks) can be phased in gently from July 19th. Home visits and Social Activities may resume. We will keep this under review. The full document is at https://www.cbcew.org.uk/covid-guidance-collective-worship/ Please get in touch with any thoughts.
