Following the announcement today (18/03/2020) by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, there will be no public Masses in the Shrine of St Augustine from Saturday 21st March until further notice.

The Visitor Centre will be closed from Saturday but the church will remain open every day during the current crisis from 10 am to 4 pm for private prayer. All are welcome, indeed encouraged, to use this opportunity to pray that the God of  Mercy may regard with compassion his suffering people.
