For the remainder of April and throughout May, Catholic Bishops will celebrate Mass in their Cathedral for the sick and their families, NHS frontline workers and those in social care.
The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales recognise that Covid-19 is affecting every person in every country. Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love.
Frontline workers in hospitals and care homes are giving exceptional service to those who are vulnerable at this time.
In order to show a spiritual solidarity with all those who are involved in the ways described above, each week at 7pm from Thursday 23 April, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate a Mass – which will be live-streamed for people to join – in their Cathedral.
For links to the livestream, visit the Cathedral homepage or the Bishops’ Conference webpage.
