COVID Pandemic Statement - Mass Obligation
During Covid19, the Sunday Mass Obligation has been suspended. The following statement clarifies the current situation with Admissions for Sept 2021 :
On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark the Governing Board of Margaret Roper Catholic Primary School has agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted whilst churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to COVID19.
This statement has been shared widely with parishes in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis.
The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.
If a parent/carer attended Mass at a particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) at the same frequency since that time.
This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.
