One of the most difficult parts of the lockdown has been not being able to gather together, whether for the celebration of Mass or the sacraments, or in a more social setting.

I thought that Pentecost Sunday (31st May 2020) would be a great opportunity for us to try and get together for a virtual coffee break, beginning at 12:00pm after Mass has been live-streamed. If it works, perhaps it could be a more regular occurrence in the virtual Cathedral schedule.

All you have to do is to sign-up to the website to join in the coffee break, and then, after Mass, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee, log in to, and use the meeting ID: 868-571-1627.

I look forward to being able to catchup with you all at Pentecost!
