Our clergy offer a number of public Masses per week, which may also be streamed. Details of Ordinariate Masses this week are shown in the sidebar and the Calendar. The general pattern of services is shown here: changes to the schedule within the diocesan Parish of Christ the King with St Joachim, and at other churches, are shown on their respective websites.

The Sunday Obligation was restored at Pentecost 2022, with the bishops of England & Wales exhorting the faithful to consider their attendance at Sunday Mass in the light of other activities which may also be undertaken: “We now encourage all Catholics to look again at the patterns which they have formed in recent months with regard to going to Mass on Sundays. We trust this will be done with honesty, motivated by a real love for the Lord whom we encounter in the Mass.” The vulnerable are no longer advised to shield themselves, but if you do need to isolate please consider making your spiritual communion by following an online Mass.
