Derby Catholic Live
Hosted by St Alban's, St Hugh's and the Church on Oakwood
Connecting our Catholic Communities
A message from us!
With the introduction of our third National Lockdown, the Government also announced that one change from our previous lockdowns was that Places of Worship were permitted to remain open. The Bishops Conference of England & Wales have lobbied hard to ensure staying open was a possibility.
After hearing this announcement, I consulted with St Alban’s & St Hugh’s Parish Councils, The Church on Oakwood Catholic Committee and our Parish Stewards. There was very much a consensus among us all that at this stage in the pandemic, we feel it prudent to close for the time being.
We very much appreciate that many of our parishioners who live alone or who do not have access to the internet rely on coming to Mass but this decision is made with the very best of intentions to continue to keep people safe. Myself and others will continue to keep in touch with those parishioners who would very much appreciate a regular phone call and a Newsletter through their door during this lockdown.
Our churches will remain open for funerals.
From this Sunday 10th January our Masses will be live streamed only and you can find us at www.derbycatholiclive.co.uk.
Please stay safe and I will continue to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Our Weekday Masses are as follows;
Monday - 10am @
Wednesday - 10am
