COVID19: Prayer and Worship at Home

Due to the need to stop the spread of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, we have had to take the difficult decision to close Catholic churches to the public until further notice. Rest assured we will continue to provide news, resources and information to help you keep Christ at the centre of your lives at home.

Many people are asking how we will observe Easter this year in these difficult times. Here’s some guidance from Rome in the form of a decree.

Holy Week with Pope Francis

We will embed live Catholic Masses and prayer here but do check the Vatican News YouTube channel for the latest broadcast events.


Cardinal Vincent Nichols is encouraging Catholics to #PrayForPriests through Holy Week – particularly on Maundy Thursday when we recall the Last Supper and the institution of the Holy Eucharist.

“I ask you, please, this Holy Week – this Maundy Thursday – to pray for priests that they will be faithful and generous. And I know they are spending a lot of time in prayer for you.
