 What Covid-19 relaxation of restrictions means for us

after Monday 19th July 2021

7th September:  As we move into the Autumn season of coughs & sneezes, sniffles and  wheeses, we respectfully ask that if you have a cold or anything easily communicable, please do not come into church but rather 

attend mass on-line by listening to the streamed services.

Later on, Fr. Jim may be taking mass in the garden in the open which will reduce communicable risk during the Autumn & Winter flu season.

In line with the consultation last year, wef Saturday 23 October as daylight considerably shortens, the Saturday Vigil Mass will revert to the earlier time

of  4pm.  

Following consultation with parishioners, and in line with their suggestions,

Fr Jim and Deacon John, respectfully propose the following course of action from Monday 19th July until further notice:

   We will continue to ask you to sanitise your hands on entering and leaving

   the church for Mass or for times of private prayer. 

   We will ask you to continue wearing masks all the time you are at Mass.

   We will continue the spacing of the pews to maintain a 1 metre distance          from the people around you.  To this end we would ask you

not to kneel or stand if this will mean you are 

less than a metre from the people in front of you.

We will not return to congregational singing just yet.

 

   We will comply with the NHS Track and Trace system.

At weekday Masses we ask you to scan the QR Code or put your name and contact number on the list at the entrance to the church.

At weekend Masses we will continue to ask you to book in for Mass

though I will try to be more efficient in ensuring that regular attenders

are always on this list, and only those intermittent attenders need register either by QR code or by giving their name and contact number.

Check with the steward to make sure if you are on the list.

Fr Jim needs your help in protecting himself from Covid-19,

the Flu and lung infections which we are assured will hit us,

and put strain on the NHS, in the winter months.

We will continue to monitor the situation.

 

Deacon John Boughton

hand sanitizing and name recording.

Hands - Face - Space 

As ever, stewards are needed for Saturday vigil and Sunday masses to ensure

everyone's safety.
