Fr Andrew will continue to celebrate Mass every Sunday at St Joseph’s, Carterton and this will be available via Zoom.
Please see the St Joseph’s website for details
The Saturday evening 6.00 pm Vigil Mass will be celebrated at Burford starting on Saturday, 26 June
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 for the weekday and Vigil Masses is not necessary.
As numbers attending the Sunday morning Mass are increasing we will be introducing an online booking system via Eventbrite starting with the 10.00 am Mass on Sunday 27 June. It would help if you could use the booking system for the 20 June Mass as it will give us the opportunity to iron out any glitches in the system. Please come early as, due to social distancing requirements, there are limited places.
We must continue to adhere to the recommendations and regulations of the government 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. All doors and windows must be opened before and during all services and this includes weekday services.
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.
