ARCHDIOCESE OF CARDIFF
OFFICE OF THE ARCHBISHOP
18th March 2020
The Bishops of England and Wales have issued the following advice for the
Church in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic we are currently enduring:
The Public Celebration of Mass should cease from the evening of 20 March 2020.
This includes Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. The obligation for
the faithful to attend Mass on these days is removed until further notice owing
to the extraordinary circumstances. Priests will continue to celebrate Mass
privately, without a congregation.
Mindful of the Lord’s call to “love our neighbour” we look to one another for
support in these heart-breaking times. But we also remember his call to trust;
to trust in his mercy for all people and we seek his protecting hand.
My prayers, good wishes and blessings go to you all at this time. Let us pray together as we have never prayed before.
With every blessing,
Archbishop of Cardiff
Our Lady of the Angels R.C. Church
The church will be opened from Tuesday to Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday and Sunday 9.30am-12noon for private prayer
