The celebration of Mass can continue for the present.  However, with a record number of people testing positive for coronavirus and the number of people in hospital with Covid now exceeding figures from the first wave public services have been suspended since 11 January. This suspension will be reassessed at the next Parish Council meeting on 21 January. 

When services resume it is critical that the Covid-19: Guidance for the safe use of places of worship rules are followed both by those acting as stewards and for those attending Mass.  These rules include the need to have windows and doors open during services, the importance of hand sanitising and the need to avoid gatherings in the car park before or after Mass.

 Guidance for those wishing to attend church for private prayer can be found here.
If there are any updates the information will be available here on our website and via the weekly email.  If you do not yet receive the email from Carolyn Walton and you would like to be added to the list of recipients please email catholicchurchburford@gmail.com.

Fr Andrew would like to remind parishioners that he can be contacted directly to discuss any matters of concern.
He is also very much aware that some parishioners, in following government advice, are not able to attend Mass. If you would like Fr Andrew to visit you in your home please contact him on 01993 842463 or via email.
