When you come to Mass: Please follow the guidance of the Stewards: Wear a Mask, Sanitise your Hands when entering and leaving, DO NOT Mingle with anyone outside of your household or support bubble. If you suspect you may have Coronavirus Symptoms, have been in touch with anyone how has, or if you are feeling unwell, DO NOT COME TO CHURCH.

FROM MONDAY 19TH JULY 2021, there will be no need to request, a place, in advance, for the Sunday Masses. For the time being, the Church will remain closed except for before and after Mass. We will follow the advise of the Bishops by:
  • Continuing to provide hand gel, as people arrive for Mass, and leave the Church
  • Asking everyone attending Mass to continue to wear a Mask, unless exempt
  • Cleaning the Church after each Mass

These are important steps, on the return to ‘normality’. Throughout the pandemic, those attending Mass, have cooperated fully with the various guidelines, and that has been tremendously supportive and encouraging. As we enter this new phase, I know I can depend on your continued cooperation. which is in the interests of the safety, and well being of us all.
