We will be making a few changes to our weekend Masses (21 & 22 March 2020).
Masses will be held at the usual times from the side entrance to the church overlooking the car park. People can either stand around or sit on the outdoor seating provided or in their cars.
The Mass will also be live streamed in the church for the elderly and infirm (a maximum of 80 people will be allowed in). You will be directed by designated parishioners when you arrive.
Archbishop Fisher has also granted a dispensation from the usual obligation to participate in Sunday Mass.
Social Distancing applies at all times: everyone must keep 1.5m from one another.
Communion will be brought to each parishioner where they are seated so there will be no queueing.
We are making every effort to provide a sanitised environment.
IF YOU ARE UNWELL, susceptible to virus or considered to be at high risk should you contract COVID-19, PLEASE STAY HOME.
With the situation changing so rapidly, we will be making adjustments to our arrangements on a weekly basis. Please send us an email, call us or share your details with us on the Contact Form on our website and we will keep you updated.
At this trying time, may we place all our TRUST in the LORD and seek the intercession of Our Blessed Mother, to whom our church is dedicated.
Let us also look out for each other and if there is any need, please get in touch with us.
