Due to the ongoing Covid 19 we have to take great care in the way we come together.

  2. If you are in any way unwell or with any underlying condition DO NOT COME.
  3. When you come you will have a designated seat at a safe distance from others
  4. We ask you to wear a face covering throughout the Mass.
  5. The mass will be shorter (no singing).
  6. Communion will be at the end of Mass.
  7. There will be stewards on duty to help with the new procedures.

It is important to follow the guidelines below:

  • Hands will be sanitised on entering the church
  • Guidance to your seat will be given
  • No kneeling – sitting or standing permitted only
  • Communion will be by hand only
  • No candles will be available for lighting

Track and Trace

We are obliged to fill out the forms for each mass we attend with the time and date of mass also.  This is an added precaution we are taking in case we are contacted by the Track & Trace system. This would only happen if they are notified of a person who has attended one of our masses and has gone on to show symptoms. The forms will be available at the door on entry.

We have to the best of our ability and Government/Diocese guidelines made Church a safe space for our parishioners to attend
