Because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus Epidemic, all Masses at St Robert of Newminster Church will be cancelled from the evening of Friday March 20th 2020 until further notice.
Fr Peter will continue to celebrate Mass each day, (without a congregation) fulfilling the Mass Intentions for each day, praying for those intentions and praying for the intentions of all parishioners at this very difficult time.
It is unprecedented for us to be in this situation. Daily and Sunday Mass is so important in the lives of so many Catholics in our parishes up and down the country and throughout the world.
We ask you to pray for all who are affected by this worldwide pandemic.
Sadly this notice also gives information about Funerals, Baptisms, and Weddings that are planned for the near future and also First Holy Communion celebrations and Receptions into the Church at Easter, that may be affected.
Here you will find links to the Message from Cardinal Vincent Nichols and some explanatory notes for our priests, deacons and parishes at this time.
