ATTENDING MASS AT THE WEEKENDS
There continues to be severe limitations on the number of people that are allowed into the Church at any one time. We are able to fit 57 people in the Church in a socially distanced manner, and a further 41 in the Parish Hall, where we can live-stream the Mass and distribute Holy Communion.
At the weekends, we will celebrate “Sunday” Mass at 10.00am and 6.30pm on a Saturday, and at 8.30am, 11.30am and 6.30pm on a Sunday.
The obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday is still suspended, so we do encourage people to attend Mass during the week if they are able to, and that will free up more places at the weekend. There will be a 10.00am Mass as usual each morning.
It is most important that we can track and trace everyone who comes to Mass should the need arise, and also that we can comply with the restrictions that apply to our numbers. Therefore, you must inform us beforehand if you are planning on coming to a particular Mass. You cannot just turn up on the spur of the moment. Please either email the Parish (email@example.com), or phone (01992 623156) or call into the Parish Office. We will need your name, phone number and email address, and details of the Mass you wish to attend.
Please note, the Government Guidance says it is mandatory to wear face coverings in Church. When attending Mass please bring a face covering with you. Readers may remove their face coverings at the lectern to read and should replace them before stepping away from it.
During the week the Church will open from:
9.00 – 11.00am
12.00 – 1.00pm
4.30pm – 6.30pm (Saturday, 4.30pm – 6.00pm)
We still need more volunteers to make all this work. We need more people to act as stewards each time the Church is open, and also more people to help with the cleaning of the Church after each Mass and each evening.
