Coming Back To Mass
The welcome news that we can celebrate Mass with a congregation came this week. The mass is what our faith is all about especially Sunday Mass. Mass will be said every day at St Mary’s so if you would rather come when there might not be many people attending then do come to one of the daily masses. It is very important to emphasise that the Sunday obligation, at present, remains suspended.
Due to the ongoing Covid 19 we have to take great care in the way we come together.
- There is no obligation to come to Mass
- If you are in any way unwell or with any underlying condition DO NOT COME.
- When you come you will have a designated seat at a safe distance from others
- We ask you to wear a face covering throughout the Mass.
- The mass will be shorter (no singing).
- Communion will be at the end of Mass.
- 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. Forms will be available at the door of the church.
We have to the best of our ability and Government/Diocese guidelines made Church a safe space for our parishioners to attend
All Masses will be celebrated at St Mary & St Petroc Parish Church, Bodmin
Saturday Vigil Mass 12noon (This will be recorded and broadcast for those unable to attend mass.)
Weekday masses Monday – Friday will be at 10.00am.
The church will close immediately after each Mass.
