Everyone is struggling with the Coronavirus closures and suspensions. This is a crisis that will affect many lives for many months to come.
Here at the Shrine, Mass carries on. From the evening of Friday 20th March until further notice, Mass will be said in private, but we will not stop offering that Holy Sacrifice to Our Lord. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will continue – even if it is just Fr Alan on his own in church. However, all of you will be here in our prayers, if not in person.
Unlike many parishes, we have no investments, no properties from which we can collect rent and little cash in the bank. The Shrine is funded almost entirely on what people put in the collection each week. With people self-isolating and with public Mass being cancelled, we will have no income until life gets back to normal.
