No Sunday Obligation
Please note that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is no longer in force: it has been waived by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales for the duration of the pandemic, to lessen congestion and minimise risk of transmission of coronavirus. Parishioners are encouraged to spread their Mass attendance over the week; you are not obliged to attend Sunday Mass.
Volunteer Stewards and Safety
Several safety measures are now in place for the duration of the pandemic, to minimise risk from coronavirus, following guidance by our Bishops. These measures are overseen by volunteer stewards, and I am very grateful to them for volunteering as otherwise we could not reopen for worship.
We need more stewards for the rota and to extend opening hours for prayer in our churches, so if you are between 16 and 70 years of age, fit and well, and not caring for a vulnerable person, do please come forward to help as a volunteer.
Volunteers should contact David Vassallo, volunteer co-ordinator, on or 01329 512726 / 07986788547.
Live Mass Streaming
A live Mass is streamed every day from Porstmouth Cathedral at 12.15 pm and of course there are several Masses on Sundays. Please check the Schedule on the Diocesan website. The Masses are also recorded so if you cannot make the live stream you can catch up at your convenience. To see the live stream go to Portsmouth RC Diocesan website (https://www.portsmouthdiocese.org.uk/spiritual-resources) or simply click here.
