Bishop Marcus and his fellow Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have issued the following important message to the lay faithful with joyful news of the full return to Sunday Mass for all!

We, the Bishops of England & Wales, believe that the reasons which have prevented Catholics from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, no longer apply.

We understand there will still be some members of our congregations who, for reasons of health, do not feel safe enough to return to Mass. It has always been the understanding of the Church that when the freedom of any Catholic to attend Mass in person is impeded for a serious reason, because of situations such as ill health, care for the sick or legitimate fear, this is not a breach of the Sunday Obligation.
