Temporary CLOSURE to reduce the spread

Dear Parishioners,

As you are fully aware COVID-19 has dramatically increased in our area and can be spread by people who have no idea they are carrying the virus. Until sufficient people have been vaccinated, we all have a responsibility to do our part in reducing the spread by staying at home as much as possible. This is the way to protect vulnerable individuals and to enable the NHS to cope both with COVID sufferers and other people who need medical care.

In order to protect us all, myself included, I have decided that the Sacred Heart Church will be closed to all regular public services and private prayer from 1pm on Sunday 10th January until further notice. Although some of the Churches in Brighton and Hove will remain open, I urge you not to put yourselves and others at risk by going to a neighbouring parish.

There will be a live streamed Mass at
6pm Saturdays,
9.30am and 11.30am Sundays and
8.00am Monday – Friday.

Please stay safe and join us via live streaming.

Hopefully, it will not be too long before normal service can be resumed.

Canon Colin Wolczak
