Following the Prime Minister's address to the nation on 23 March the churches of St Joseph, St Thomas and St John will be closed until further notice, this includes for personal prayer. This is a very difficult moment for many of us, but the health and wellbeing of our community here in Banbury and further afield is of paramount importance.
Mass will continue to be streamed daily at St John’s Church at 9.30am, Monday to Friday; 10.00am on Saturday and 11.15am on Sunday.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will be streamed for 30 minutes at the end of each weekday Mass.

We are unable to offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation in circumstances that would be safe for us or for the penitent under the current guidelines, except in cases of grave necessity.
Please read the newsletter on this website which is updated every Friday evening to keep you up to date.
During this very difficult time, Fr Richard and Fr Chris wish to assure all parishioners and all members of their family and friends of our prayers for their well-being and safety.
If you need to speak to, or see a priest urgently, please do still contact the parish office.
