Places of worship in England can be reopened for prayer and worship starting July 4th, including weddings of up to 30 people, the Prime Minister announced.

Speaking to the House of Commons on Tuesday, Boris Johnson said: “I know that many have mourned the closure of places of worship, and this year Easter, Passover and Eid all happened during the closure.

"I am very pleased that the places of worship can be opened again for prayers and services, including weddings with a maximum of 30 people, who are all subject to social distance."

Cardinal Vincent Nichols welcomed the message and said: “As Catholics, we are now looking forward to celebrating Mass again on July 4th. We waited for this moment with patience and longing and understood the importance of protecting the health of people in our society. Now we are looking forward to participating in the Eucharist again, which is at the center of our faith. "

The cardinal added that the bishops would distribute "detailed guidelines" for the resumption of Mass. "It is important that we continue to follow government guidelines on appropriate social distance and other measures to avoid all unnecessary risks." he said.

"Our own detailed guides are distributed across dioceses and parishes so everyone can be sure they are coming to the fair safely and understand what role they should play in protecting each other from the remaining risk of infection."

The Prime Minister announced a comprehensive lifting of the blocking restrictions on July 4. In addition to the resumption of public worship, pubs and restaurants as well as hotels, museums and hairdressers can be reopened with suitable sanitary and social distance measures.

Since last Monday, the places of worship can be opened again for private prayers.
