Masses for the Sick, NHS Front Line and 
Social Care





Mass for the Sick and their Families,

NHS Front-Line workers and those working in Social Care


The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales recognise that this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every person in our countries.  Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love.  Our front-line workers in hospitals and in care homes all over our lands 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 7.00pm


4th June  Bishop John Arnold   Salford Cathedral


11th June  Bishop Patrick McKinney  Nottingham Cathedral


18th June  Archbishop Bernard Longley Birmingham Cathedral


25th June  Bishop Alan Hopes   Norwich Cathedral


2nd July   Archbishop John Wilson   Southwark Cathedral
