Pentecost Novena

This novena, on the Care of Creation, is to be prayed over the nine days between the Ascension and Pentecost. It is offered as part of our contribution as Catholics towards the ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative.

The Bishop encourages us to make use of this important prayer resource, as we join with our brothers and sisters in Christ from other Christian denominations, in responding in prayer and action to the urgent climate change issues that face our world today.

Please see novena here

  • Covid-19 Vaccine: The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales urge you to get the vaccine when it is your turn. NHS England has produced videos of clinicians speaking in different languages to help ensure messages about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine are clear for all, especially useful if someone in your family speaks a different language.
