We are delighted to announce that some of our church buildings will be open for private prayer from Monday 15th June.

Welcome Home

“It is good to be able to offer you a few words of welcome as you return to church for some moments of personal prayer. These continue to be challenging times, but at least we are able to spend a few moments before the Blessed Sacrament today. Amongst your many prayers at this time, please do say a prayer for me as your new bishop. In asking this, I know you will remember our clergy and religious, our schools and people across the Diocese. Please do keep especially in prayer those who have suffered with coronavirus and have lost loved ones. Remember all those who are struggling with the financial impact of this crisis too. And finally, let’s all pray together that we may soon gather again to celebrate public liturgy, especially Holy Mass and the sacraments.”

 David

Bishop of Northampton

 

At this stage, our buildings will only offer a space for private prayer, planned gatherings for prayer and devotions are still not permitted as these gradual, measured steps are introduced.

Details of the future plans for opening our churches for acts of public worship can be seen here.

Here is a full list of the churches that will be open for private prayer by town / pastoral area. Full address and contact details of all our churches can be found here.
