We are asked to be particularly wary at present of the above situations.

In accordance with the latest government guidelines but also due to security reasons, we are unable to leave the Blessed Sacrament Chapel open during the day until further notice. The Prayer Garden will remain open between 9.30 – 19.30 every day.
The church is now closed for public worship but Mass, and any other services, will be live streamed at either: http://ssppilford.org.uk/wp2/live-stream-church/ or http://ssppilford.org.uk/wp2/live-stream-church-services/ . Please check both pages at the appropriate time and the Parish Newsletter. Thank you.
Message from Fr. Andrew
We live in unprecedented times. There is no longer the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday until further notice but there has never been a more important time to serve Christ in our neighbour. To be strengthened and united in the Holy Spirit to carry out works of mercy, please pray at home with the help of live-streaming and all the resources you can find on this, and other, websites. Let us take care of our family, friends and neighbours until that day when we can once again be together as a parish family under one roof. Ss Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Following the decision of the Bishops’ Conference we would like to inform you that from 21st March until further notice all public services in our church have been suspended.
For the foreseeable future there will be no Baptisms, Confirmation classes, First Holy Communion classes or RCIA meetings taking place.
Please check the current newsletter for Mass times that are being live streamed.
Please find below, a link to the Diocesan news page, where we have published an article with recommendations for parents with school-aged children to enable them to continue to worship in the home, and continue to mark the season of Lent / Easter period with their families without gathering publicly for mass.
