How to wash your hands properly

One of our best weapons of protection to combat the spread of viruses and diseases is good hygiene. This starts with thorough hand-washing. This article offers NHS and World Health Organisation advice on how best to do so.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols released a truly uplifting video in response to the postponement of public Masses which you can watch here. In the video he reminded us that there are people all over the world who regularly cannot go to church, due to persecution. Cardinal Nichols asked that we keep them in our hearts during this difficult time. He asked that we dig deeper into the resources we have to celebrate Our Lady and Our Lord at home - we hope that our online prayer material can help you with this. Though this is a challenging time, we are pleased to invite you to say the Angelus or the Rosary with us. In the words of Cardinal Nichols, let us use this time to "put down deeper roots of the Spirit".

Your wonderful kindness and compassion is what keeps ACN going and without you our work would be impossible. We ask you to remember our dear brothers and sisters around the world, who face much greater difficulties than we do. Please keep them in your prayers.

You can have a Mass said for someone in need or light prayer candles on our website.
