During the current health crisis caused by COVID-19, Bayard is providing the texts of the Sunday liturgies to you free of charge as an aid to worship, especially for those who cannot attend Sunday liturgies because of illness or because they have been cancelled. While this is not a replacement for actual attendance at a Sunday Mass, it will allow you to immerse yourself in the Scripture readings and prayers for each Sunday, along with our reflection on the readings.

In addition to the liturgies, our editors have compiled a list of resources to help parents provide social caring and interaction during periods of school closure.

Supporting Students During an Epidemic will be updated as resources become available, throughout this period.
