Holy Mass will be live streamed daily on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9:15 and on Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm. On Sundays there will be one mass at 10:30. Access to live stream here.
Covid-19: Parish Guidelines
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23 March, Archbishop John Wilson has asked that all churches in the Archdiocese be closed until further notice.
Father Saju will continue to celebrate Mass but privately every weekday at the times noted in the Newsletter for the intentions received. On Sunday at 10.30 am there will be one Mass celebrated privately for the intention and all other intentions of the day will be remembered at this special circumstance. All these masses from St Dominic’s will now be live streamed. If you have any intentions to be offered at the private Mass celebrated, please let the parish office know.
Let us continue to pray for one another, for our country and for the whole world as we face this challenge together.
You are invited to join the Holy Mass in spiritual communion by placing yourself in front of a crucifix, perhaps, in all safety, with a candle and participate by saying the Rosary, readings of the day or other prayers.
Each day, the Vatican News live streams Pope Francis’ masses at Casa Santa Marta via The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham at 12 noon. Alternatively, you may wish to follow live streaming of the celebration of Mass, perhaps from our sister church, St. Mary’s, West Croydon, one of the churches in the Southwark diocese or at one of the Catholic churches countrywide. There is also a wealth of information and resources available on the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales website.
Please continue visiting the parish website for the Newsletter and all updates.
