Archbishop John wrote to the Prime Minister, Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP, this week expressing his understanding of “a growing sense of dissatisfaction” particularly as our churches are not yet permitted to open where a growing number of retail outlet will soon open their doors.
“Religious faith can help support people, both directly and indirectly, with respect to their wellbeing. Access to places of worship is integral to this.”
Archbishop John also wrote to all MP’s with constituencies in the Archdiocese. The full text of his letter may be read here.
