  1. Please note that the obligation to attend mass on Sundays and holidays is dispensed during this time.
  2. We have two separate pods in the church and most of the seats in the middle row are not available – this is to create a 4-meter distance between the two pods. Strictly no movement of people between pods before, during or after the service.
  3. As the Church can only hold 100 at any one time, please consider coming to mass on a weekday rather than Sunday.
  4. The 10am mass every day will be available on the link on our Parish website as usual. So, we encourage as many of you as possible to continue to attend mass online.
  5. The Parish office is open as normal.
  6. Confessions are Saturdays at 10:30 am or on request.
  7. Do your best not to block the doors entering and leaving the church.
  8. Do your best to respect physical distancing. Please keep a safe distance (2 metres) from one another when entering the church, sitting, approaching the Altar for Holy Communion, and leaving the church. Two meters equals to 4 empty seats this means that between households there has to be at least 4 empty seats in the church.
  9. Please use the hand sanitisers available on entering and exiting the church.
  10. Please be patient and respect the stewards on duty.
  11. Please follow floor and seat markings.

  13. Communion will ONLY be given on the hand.
  14. Please leave patiently and promptly after Mass.
  15. Try to keep the lighting of candles at shrines to private visits to your Church when it is open at times other than for Mass. Remember that hand sanitiser can be flammable, so ensure your hands are completely dry before lighting candles.
  16. In the interest of physical distancing there will be no choir. Music will be provided by a single cantor and a single accompanist.
  17. To minimize physical contact with furniture we encourage you to either sit or stand during the celebration of Mass and avoid kneeling down for the time being.
  18. Please make your donations to the collection on your way into the church or alternatively use the envelopes available in the church or one of the easy payment card machines or the Donate button above.
  19. We have committees in place, and we are planning to accomplish this return to church and comply with all the regulations with regard to public health and safety.
  20. The sacristy is closed to the public and the toilet is also temporarily closed.

We pray for all who are sick in our Parish and we remember all who have died during the lockdown and the bereaved. Thank you for your understanding and for all your support at this difficult time.
