Back to Mass

admin News

For the present the maximum attendance at any Mass will be 50 people. The 2m rule is remaining in force at present. We will open 30 minutes before each Mass. Remember to bring a face covering.

The Sunday obligation remains suspended, so we would encourage you to attend one Mass a week, regardless of the day. If our congregation is spread out over the whole week rather than all coming on a Sunday this may be an effective way to allow everyone to attend Mass at least once a week, and since the Sunday liturgy is being minimalised just now the weekday liturgy will not be noticeably different from the Sunday Liturgy.

Remember that the church must be closed and cleaned after each Mass (the more volunteers the better)–we have to make sure that there is enough time between Masses for everyone to leave in a safe and managed way, for the church to be fully cleaned, and then for the next congregation to arrive and be seated safely.

Track & Trace: We must record the names and contact details of all attendees to pass on to the NHS in the event of an outbreak in a parish. It would make sense and help us if you came with this already prepared on a piece of paper that you could drop into a box. It would facilitate quick access into the Church. The information will be only used to contact you should there be someone in the congregation at the same Mass who developed symptoms of the virus.

You will be able to book in for the usual schedule of Masses this coming weekend. Sign up sheets will be available during the Opening Hours for Private Prayer this week and at the Masses next week.
