The measures outlined below are being taken in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Opening Times

We are now celebrating Public Masses once again at their usual times. The only alteration will be the Sunday 12 noon Mass, which is now at 12.15pm. As you go into church, please take note of measures for physical distancing and be attentive to directions from our church wardens. Please sit by household in the alternate rows indicated, and spread out by household along the communion rails. In the event that a Mass is overattended, an overflow Mass will take place in the Upper Cloister Hall, where a temporary chapel has been prepared.

Confession is available in Church at the usual times before and during public Masses.

It has been decided that, given the popularity of afternoon Exposition, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on Fridays from 2-5pm. This is in addition to existing Exposition times on Thursday and Saturday.

We regret that all live streams are suspended. This includes the Sunday 10.30 High Mass, which will not now be live streamed, contrary to our previous announcement.

It is now once again possible to arrange Baptisms, Marriages and Funerals. Please address enquiries to the Parish Priest – parishpriest@birminghamoratory.org.uk

The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days remains suspended.
