What the Covid-19 Relaxation of some restrictions means for us.
The main change that affects us is that we can go to Mass during the week,
from Tuesday to Friday, without stewards, though we still need to comply with
Track and Trace instructions and put our names and contact details
on the sheets provided or scan the QR Code and maintain
the " Hands, Face, and Space" Covid safetly mitigations.
Attendees should still wear masks and sanitise their hands as they enter the church.
We will still need to book in for Mass at the weekends as these Masses are likely to be busier, and will still need stewards to control those coming
into the church at the weekend.
Further changes will be considered by the Bishops of England and Wales in the light of future government changes
to the regulations.
A small choir of up to 6 singers is allowed though indoor congregational singing is not expected to be permitted until at least 21 June - and this date may be extended.
To ensure the best Covid -19 safely measures are applied for
everyone's protection, you will have to book in for weekend Masses:
the best way is to email Dcn John on
or text/call John
(his number is on the Bulletin accessible via the Parish website: www.virginmotherofgoodcounsel.com.)
Please arrive in good time to allow for mask donning,
hand sanitizing and name recording.
Please also remember to maintain social distancing in the
car park and on the steps leading up to the church.
For everyone's greater protection, Fr. Jim now gives out
Holy Communion under a screen: you need only to put your hands
under this screen to receive Holy Communion.
As ever, stewards are needed to ensure
Covid-19 safety precautions: without stewards congregation attendance
is not permitted under current C-19 restrictions.
If you are able to assist please contact Dcn John.
