dbWelcome to parish of St Mary's, Brewood
We are living through difficult times as the world faces the COVID-19 Virus. Following the Prime Minister’s historic announcement of strengthening restrictions in an attempt to combat the spread of COVID-19 on Monday 23rd March, Catholic Churches are closed to the public at this time. Cardinal Vincent Nichols stresses that we must all play our part to safeguard the NHS and to save ‘precious lives’. You can see him speaking on this by clicking here
In the meantime, Mass is being celebrated daily in our local churches and that we are spiritually united with the celebrant and with one another as beneficiaries of the Sacrifice of Christ. If you are self isolating or you are ill, you can still access Masses online. The live-streaming of Mass from a number of churches in our diocese is proving to be a great spiritual resource and a powerful way of expressing and deepening our communion in Christ during these challenging days. Fr Paul is trying to live-steam Mass at his Youtube channel which can be reached by clicking here Mass times an tips for accessing Mass each day can be found on the newsletter each week on the Newsletter page You can find other churches with this facility in the West Midlands by clicking here
You can also find material for prayer at our Prayer Resources page; including prayers to say when Mass cannot be celebrated publicly.
Our parish is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham - Registered Charity No. 234216
