Coronavirus: All Public Worship Suspended

18th March 2020

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has announced today, 18 March 2020, that all public liturgies (including Mass) will cease from Friday evening, 20th March 2020 .

The obligation for the faithful to attend Holy Mass on a Sunday or Holy day of Obligation is also removed, until further notice. We will publish soon further details of interim arrangements.

UPDATE (24 March): While all churches are now closed, owing to emergency legislation, we have now commenced livestreaming daily Mass. Please join us in prayer if you can.

The Dominican Community Blackfriars is praying especially for all of you at this strange and difficult time. Please also stay in touch with us and with each other, especially those who are most vulnerable.

Any updates will be posted here on this website and on our Facebook page, which we recommend that you follow.
