The Church has Reopened!
The pandemic timetable has returned. There is a Sunday Mass at 10.00 am and weekday Masses on Tuesday and Thursday at 10.00am and on Friday at 6.00 pm. Booking is not necessary but please come early as, due to social distancing requirements, there are limited places.
We must continue to adhere to the limitations in force when the church was last open for services at the beginning of January and these include wearing face masks so that they cover both the nose and the mouth, the recording of contact numbers for all attendees, the sanitising of hands on entering and leaving church and most importantly there is a requirement for people to leave church immediately after communion and not congregate in groups in the car park.
See Covid-19: Guidance for the safe use of places of worship for the full rules that are to be followed both by those acting as stewards and for those attending Mass.
If there are any updates the information will be available here on our website and via the weekly email bulletin. If you do not yet receive the bulletin from Carolyn Walton and you would like to be added to the list of recipients please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
