Home > News > BLACKFRIARS AND CORONAVIRUS – GETTING MASS AND THE SACRAMENTS TO YOU

Following the latest statements from the Government and the Cardinal Nichols’ address on 24 March in response to the Covid-19 there will be no more public celebration of Mass or other services, and our chapel will be closed for visits, until further notice.

This is heartbreaking, but as the Cardinal explains, this is in order to keep each other safe, save lives and support the NHS. The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is removed for as long as these emergency circumstances last.

But GOOD NEWS: we are getting Mass and our other daily services direct to you from our chapel by LIVE BROADCAST on Radio Maria England. Times are as follows:

SUNDAY MASS: 9.30 AM

Weekday Mass: Monday to Friday 7.30 am, Saturday 9.30 am

Morning Prayer (Lauds): Monday to Friday 7 am, Saturday and Sunday 9 am

Evening Prayer (Vespers): Monday to Friday 6.30 pm, Sundays 7 pm

Join in our Holy Week liturgies here.

For online access to Mass in the Extraordinary Form (Old Rite), please scroll down.

Please note that there is no iPlayer – all broadcasts are live and not currently recorded. But that means that we know that everyone in the congregation will be listening together – we are still connected! We have also set up a Facebook group to help you keep in touch with each other and to bring help to those in need. We’ll be putting sharing good resources here and on Facebook as we go into this imposed retreat together – not one we might have chosen, but one that may truly be a time of grace.

The Sacraments of Holy Communion, Confession and Anointing of the Sick can be brought to anyone who is seriously ill in hospital. Email us via the CONTACT button above, or phone us on 01223 741251.

Sunday Mass in the Extraordinary Form: Fr Lawrence Lew OP, of St. Dominic’s Priory in London (the Rosary Shrine), celebrates a Mass in the Dominican Rite on Sundays at 4 pm. He will be live-streaming this on his Facebook page. If you are not on Facebook, you can access the video later on YouTube – this link should work.

God bless you and keep you safe. We are grateful as always for your prayers and support. We are praying for you as together we enter into the desert with Our Lord Jesus.
