Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidelines

The situation is changing rapidly, so rather than maintain a separate copy of the current guidelines, you can find them on the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales webiste here.

At the time of writing the five archbishops are due to issue a clear statement on the way forward later this morning.

Response to Covid-19 Outbreak and Prayer

Archbishop John Wilson has issued a decree to all parishes in Southwark outlining changes being made to help prevent spread of the virus.  The main changes are:

  1. No sign of peace before the Agnus Dei.
  2. No Communion from the Chalice.
  3. It encourages the Sacred Host to be received in the hand.
  4. No holy water provided at church entrances.
  5. No shared Mass books or hymn books.

These changes apply until April 6th and will be reviewed before that date.
