Church arrangements post Monday 19 July 2021

We very much look forward to welcoming more people back to church as we progressively exit lockdown arrangements.  Sunday masses remain viewable on our YouTube channel for those that are unable to attend in person.  Mass times can be found on the services page.

We have now opened all the benches in church for worshipers, but ask that people remain cautious and continue to space themselves out from other people.  The lady chapel has been re-opened, but is restricted to one family group at a time please.

Face masks continue to be worn under the advice of the diocese except for those who are exempt.

Stewards remain in place to assist parisioners and to direct them up to communion at the appropriate time during Mass.

Please do everything you can to remain safe, and consider the safety of others around you.  If you show any Covid-19 symptoms you should not attend church services.
