St Cuthbert’s Church will remain closed until further notice. All Masses and liturgies will continue to be celebrated without a congregation.
Palm Sunday: Bishop Robert has directed that palms should be blessed at Mass, so that they can be distributed to the faithful when it is possible to do so.
Diocesan Chrism Mass: This will be postponed until it can be celebrated with a gathering of clergy and people.
Holy Thursday: The Mass of the Lord’s Supper will be celebrated, without the Washing of Feet or the procession to the Altar of Repose.
Good Friday: The Liturgy of the Passion will be celebrated, with special intentions included in the Universal Prayer.
Easter Vigil: The new Paschal Candle will be blessed and lit, without the lighting of the Easter fire.
You are invited to join in prayer with all of these celebrations, and with the praying of the Office of Readings on Good Friday and Holy Saturday. Remember that Good Friday is a day of fasting and abstinence.
Mass Intentions can be requested by email, telephone or letter. No offering is needed for a Mass intention.
