The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales recognise that this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every person in our countries. Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love.
Our front-line workers in hospitals and in care homes all over our lands 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, at 7.00pm each Thursday from tonight, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate Mass in their Cathedral which will be live-streamed for people to join.
Cardinal Vincent Nichols celebrated the first Mass in Westminster Cathedral at 7.00pm on 23rd April.
Bishop Mark will celebrate Mass in Shrewsbury Cathedral at 7.00pm on 21st May.
Remaining dates, up to the end of May, are as follows (click on the Cathedral name to access he live feed):
Bishop Robert Byrne in Newcastle Cathedral at 7.00pm on 14th May
Bishop Terence Drainey in Middlesbrough Cathedral at 7.00pm on 28th May
