Services in the Abbey Church

Following the Catholic Bishops’ of England and Wales Coronavirus guidance on 18th March 2020, public services will be private and not open to the public until further notice. Ampleforth will be implementing this from Vespers at 6.00pm on Friday 20th March.

The Monastic Community will continue to celebrate its daily Office and Conventual Mass in the Abbey Church, but, in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Bishops’ Conference, these will be celebrated without a public congregation. Much as the monastic community regrets this move, the guidelines must be followed.
