Sunday 12th July, 10.30am – LIVESTREAM from Romford – 15th Sunday of the Year

From Sunday 12th July we will transfer the Livestream; Mass will come from the parish of St Edward the Confessor, Romford.

The Parish priest in Romford, Fr Tom Jordan, is unwell, and Fr Dominic is assisting there. To serve the parish, and anyone else for whom the Livestream is helpful, we will – throughout July and August – use the BCYS channel and facilities, while gradually opening the parish church in accordance with all the Government and Bishops’ guidelines.  See more
