Rev. Canon Christopher Thomas, CBEW General Secretary writes — . 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, each week from next Thursday, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate Mass in their Cathedral which will be live-streamed for people to join. This will take place every Thursday at 7.00pm.
23rd April Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Westminster Cathedral
30th April Bishop Richard Moth, Arundel Cathedral
7th May Bishop Marcus Stock, Leeds Cathedral
14th May Bishop Robert Byrne CO, Newcastle Cathedral
21st May Bishop Mark Davies, Shrewsbury Cathedral
28th May Bishop Terence Drainey, Middlesbrough Cathedral
