Useful resources during Lockdown 3.0

Updated Jan 2021:
Despite our parishes not currently being open for public Masses we’re still encouraged to participate in services online and to continue to grow in our faith.  Why not give some of these suggestions a try?

Looking to participate in an online Mass in the Avon Stour Pastoral Area?

There are several to choose from – many of our parishes live-stream their Masses and those who do so are marked with a * below.  

Links to all the details you need to participate in available online Masses:

  • Holy Redeemer, Highcliffe – newsletter
  • * Immaculate Conception and St Joseph’s, Christchurch (includes music) – parish page
  • * Our Lady of Sorrows and St Philip Benizi, Fordingbridge – newsletter
  • * Our Lady Queen of Peace, Southbourne – YouTube page

There’s also a special Liturgy for you to use at home when Mass cannot be celebrated publicly (from The Catholic Bishops)
