Resumption of Public Worship [updated]

Following the statement of H.M. Government, public worship will resume on Wednesday 2nd December and therefore we will once again gather for Holy Mass!

The Liverpool City Region has been placed in Tier 2. Meaning that whilst we can finally come back to Mass, we must abide by the government guidelines, these being not to socialise with people from outside of our own household/support bubble while in the church. This is much the same as things had been before lockdown with some relaxation of the rules around external socialising. Face covering rules remain except where exemptions apply.

Our schedule for the week commencing Sunday 28th November is thus:

November list

In November, we remember and pray for our departed loved ones. If you wish to have your deceased family members remembered at daily Mass for the month of November, please include their details below.

Contacting your local representative

Having learned of the plan to once again suspend public worship in our churches and therefore prevent the faithful from being nourished by being present for the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Devotions and most importantly denying access to the Sacraments and also having taken cognisance of the recent statements issued by the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales and the Bishop of Shrewsbury, the Right Rev. Mark Davies, we, your Canons ask you to consider making appropriate contact with your local MP to air your views and to ask for them as your elected representative and Parliamentarian to pose questions around the validity and purpose of the proposal.

The easiest way to make contact is via:

or if you prefer full details including constituency office addresses and email contact details and telephone numbers go to:

Second lockdown: A statement from the Rt Rev. Mark Davies, the Bishop of Shrewsbury

“We appreciate the difficult choices faced at this time by government and parliament in responding to the public health crisis conscious of the hardships which even necessary measures bring for society and especially the most vulnerable.

“The Prime Minister mentioned in his statement that he judged it necessary to close much that is judged by the Government as being non-essential in society.  We need to be sure that such judgments are based upon clear evidence that, for example, schools, universities and the football premier league will continue as essential elements of our society’s life.

“The Prime Minister made no reference in his statement to public worship so we were astonished to find in national guidance that the Government was seeking the authority of parliament to close all places of worship.

“It is a momentous act for any political authority to seek to ban public worship across a nation.

“No evidence has been offered to justify why the Government seeks to ban public worship that invariably takes place amid some of the most stringent Covid safety measures in the whole of society.

“The vital role which public worship has for the well-being of hundreds of thousands of people in this Shrewsbury Diocese together with faith communities across the nation can never allow public worship to be dismissed as something non-essential.

“Neither can we lightly overlook how from public worship flows support for the most vulnerable and countless charitable activities in the service of the common good.

“We are asking our Government and political representatives to provide the evidence on which they seeking to impose a ban on all public worship in England.  We believe that public worship is not part of the problem we face rather it is part of the solution to this deeply human crisis.”

+ Mark, Bishop of Shrewsbury, 1st November 2020
