CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

When visiting St Bede’s please adopt a HANDS, FACE, SPACE approach.

Many of our Covid-19 precautions have now been discontinued, but we will be retaining some of our safety procedures whilst the rate of infection remains a concern.

VOLUNTEERS ALWAYS NEEDED – Please do consider offering your services in one of the following ways:

Stewards – Required to monitor hand sanitising on entry and exit to church, and guide where necessary to avoid crowding.

Eucharistic Ministers – We would love to hear from members of the parish who would consider becoming a Eucharistic Minister.  Training, Commissioning, and full guidance provided.

Readers – Please get in touch if you feel you could be a reader at Mass.  Full guidance provided.

Please do let us know if you can assist in any of these ways.  Contact:  stbede185@gmail.com  or  Ursula (01923 445163).
