24th March 2020

 

 

Following the national guidance of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, all public worship is suspended, and effective from 24 March, all churches are to close to the public, until further notice.

Following the Prime Minister’s Address to the Nation on 23 March and the Government’s instruction that all places of worship must now close their doors, St Thomas the Apostle will remain closed until further notice.

It is important that we approach the period ahead, doing all that we can to support those in our care. Let us pray for each other, and remember that the Lord is Our Strength.

 

Details of resources to help with worship at home may be found on the newsletter section of the website.
