COVID-19 continues affect how we can observe the many special occasions in faith calendars.
All faiths continue to make changes to how they will mark festivals, celebrations, commemorations and other special occasions.
The strict infection control measures required also limit close contact with people who are dying or have recently died, so it may not be possible for faith representatives to perform some or all of the usual rituals.
Places of worship are now allowed to open for individual prayer, in line with social distancing guidelines.
Each place of worship will decide whether it is safe for them to open, and may decide to remain closed or reopen at a slower pace if they wish.
Communally led prayer, worship or devotion such as services, evensong, informal prayer meetings or Mass are NOT be possible at this stage.
Government is working with the Taskforce on the full reopening of places of worship, as soon as the scientific advice allows - this is not expected to happen before 4 July.
