Public Health Safety Measures and COVID-19

From the evening of Friday 20th March 2020, and until further notice, all Masses will be said in private at Sacred Heart and Saint Catherine of Alexandria. The church is currently closed to visitors.

"In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, so many aspects of our lives must change. This includes the ways in which we publicly express our faith. It is very clear that, following official advice and in order to keep each other safe, save lives and support the NHS, at this time we must not gather for public acts of worship in our churches. ... However, the celebration of Mass, Sunday by Sunday and day by day, will take place without a public congregation."

Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP, 18th March 2020

See the full text of the announcement made by the Bishops' Conference.

A list of parishes live-streaming their Masses may be found on the diocesan website.

Welcome

We hope that you will get an insight into the beauty of the church and an appreciation of our parish community and that you will be inspired to come and visit us.
