Announcement 25 July 2021

Dear Parishioners,

I am pleased to announce that we will now be able to have Mass on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings at 10am in addition to our Sunday programme.      The Saturday morning Mass will continue to be a Mass with Sunday Readings and Homily.

It is noticeable already that a number of our parishioners are managing to get away for a break.     This is a good time for those who have felt unable to come to Mass over the past year to try returning to regular practice as there will be fewer people in the church.    As a first step you may wish to come on Saturday morning (10am) or Saturday evening (pm) where there is still plenty of space.

If you feel you have lost contact but would like to make your way back again, do please feel free to ring me (0207 485 4023) or email me (kentishtown@rcdow.org.uk) and I will be happy to come and see you.

What will happen at Mass following the new Government Guidelines?

Registration for Track, Trace and Test will still be available as you enter the building.

Hand sanitiser will be available before taking your place.

We will continue to wear face masks (unless officially exempt) and do social distancing.      Places will be marked with a green card (use first) or an orange card (use when the green places are all taken).    Stewards will no longer show you to your place but will be there to see that all runs smoothly.

You can now light your own candles.

We will continue to receive Holy Communion in our place.

These measures should ensure not only that our building is safe but that everyone continues to feel safe, despite the increase in the number of infections nationwide.

Fr John
