Practice of Faith
Please click this link for the Diocesan news page, where they 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. The website also gives a link to be able to see Mass live streamed. Alternatively, search for ChurchTV to see a selection of Masses that are live streamed.
