Daily Prayer Cardinal Nichols has suggested a shared moment of national prayer at 6pm each day and for us to observe 21 November the Feast of Christ the King as a day of prayer for ending the pandemic.

Below is the statement from the Catholic Bishops’ Conference. On Wednesday Parliament passed into law the Regulations governing many aspects of activity in the whole of England until Wednesday, 2 December.

“These Regulations prohibit the gathering of people for communal worship in churches and other religious buildings. Despite profound misgivings it is important that we, as responsible citizens, observe these Regulations, which have the force of law:”

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales recognise that this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every person in our countries. Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love.  Our front-line workers in hospitals and in care homes all over our lands are giving exceptional service to those who are vulnerable at this time.  In order to show our spiritual solidarity with all those who are involved in this way, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate a live-streamed Mass in his Cathedral every Thursday at 7pm.
