Whilst praying that the ‘firebreak’ lockdown in Wales will reduce the level and speed of infections, the Archbishop of Cardiff has expressed his disappointment that churches will close for public worship.
Many Catholic churches and cathedrals across England and Wales are using the month of October to take part in a national rosary mission titled ‘Rosary Whirlwind British Isles’.
Catholic churches that can safely do so have resumed collective acts of worship such as the celebration of Mass. This guidance covers: Mass, Concelebration, Confession, Funerals, Baptism, Marriage and Pastoral Care of the Sick.
Scripture is at the centre of everything the Church does. The word of God shapes our prayer and worship.
