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: firstname.lastname@example.org or Ursula (01923 445163).
