Holy Rood and Our Lady & St James

Welcome to the website of Holy Rood and Our Lady & St James parishes.

When the first ‘lockdown’ began, the Catholic Bishops of England & Wales removed the Sunday obligation of attending Mass. This still applies – there is no obligation upon Catholics to attend Mass on a Sunday in these current circumstances.

Sunday – It is our Day!

The Catholic position on vaccination

This paper will aim to provide clarity and assurances to Catholics about Church teaching and moral issues regarding vaccination. It will demonstrate the Church’s support for vaccination to protect the most vulnerable of our society, especially those affected by immunodeficiency, pregnant women and their unborn children. Finally, it will address concerns regarding the development of future vaccines, including those regarding the Church’s teaching on vaccination raised by Catholics during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Bishops’ Conference has also made the following information on Covid-19 vaccination available here.
