The Celebration of Mass at St Patrick's
(Thursday evening 19th March)
There will be no more public celebrations of the Mass or any other liturgies in any of the Catholic Churches in England and Wales. This will be the case until further notice, when it is safe for people to gather together once again.
As your parish priest I will continue to celebrate Masses on a daily basis, but these will now be private until such time as things change
Please click here to read the guidance for people to continue their lives of prayer and also find where live stream Masses are available.
I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. Please remember me in your prayers also.
Thank you for your understanding at this sad and difficult time.
If you visit the parish website above Father Eamonn is uploading his weekly sermons and there is a livestream of the Sunday Mass.
