Mass and Brunch at Westminster Cathedral. Saturday 3rd December

Change of arrangements for 3rd Dec: Mass & Brunch

Instead of going to Brown's restaurant after Mass, we will meet in a hired room just a minute away from the Cathedral for tea, coffee, cake and croissants.

After Mass, please make your way to the steps outside the Cathedral to join other CMA members and we will walk over together.

We hope this will make for a more informal atmosphere and allow people to mingle better!

Please join us!

If you know you are definitely coming, please email events@catholicmedicalassociation.org.uk. This allows us to plan ahead for the catering.
