Resumption of Public Masses from 4th July

Reopening of the Church for Sunday Mass.
We will open for Sunday Mass on Saturday evening (4th July) at 6.30 pm and on Sunday 5th
July we have masses at 9.30am 11.30 am and 6.30 pm. Masses will be shorter.

The 11.30 mass will continue to be live streamed on our Parish YouTube channel.
Since the pandemic begun the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been removed by the Bishops of England and Wales – this still applies but if you wish to attend mass and wish to avoid the busy Sunday Masses please come along to 9am weekday mass (Monday to Friday).

The capacity of the church has been reduced in line with Government guidance and there will be a maximum number of approx. 120 people allowed in to Church during each Mass and social distancing must be observed and the hygiene regulations at all times.

We are doing our best to ensure the health and safety of parishioners coming to the Church therefore a few guidelines will need to be followed.

Please do NOT come to church if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been contacted by the NHS Track and Trace service.

Entry to the church will be on a first come first served basis and social distancing will be required when queuing outside.

If possible can you not drive to church as space in the Car Park will be strictly limited.

On arrival you will directed by a steward to sanitize your hands.

Please bring you own face covering.

There will be no singing during Mass.

Do not use the kneelers.

There will be a box at the back of the church for your offertory envelopes.

The Toilets will be closed until further notice.

Please COOPERATE with the stewards and follow their directions on entry/exit and during the distribution of Holy Communion.
All the arrangements that we are putting in place will be continually assessed and reviewed as we move forward with this process of reopening our church.

Please continue to check the parish website and social media during the week for updates and further information (details are at the top of this newsletter).
