WE ARE OPERATING A REDUCED SCHEDULE
OF PUBLIC MASSES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
SUNDAY 9.30AM & 6.00PM
MONDAY AT 11.00AM
WEDNESDAY AT 6.00PM
AND FRIDAY AT 6.00PM.
Please note the church will accommodate 60 individuals. Once we have reached this limit we will not be able to allow anymore people in. We apologise in advance if you are turned away.
The church has been cleaned and benches have been cordoned off to meet the 1 metre plus distancing rules.
We are operating a one way system, entering via the main door of church
Face masks MUST be worn and after sanitizing your hands you will be guided to your seat; two individuals per bench as marked out, unless a family unit.
We ask that you try to keep touching surfaces to a minimum.
Please remain in your bench throughout Mass. At the end of Mass you will be guided out for Communion and then exit silently and socially distanced via the side chapel and Hughes Room.
There are posters on the door you should read before entering.
Anyone with symptoms should not come into the church. The vulnerable should consider the wisdom of returning to Mass too soon. The vulnerable includes those over 70 and people with pre-existing conditions.
Stewards will be at various points from entry to exit to ensure that everyone adheres to the protocols
Church will be cleaned again when everyone has vacated the church.
If you wish to volunteer as a steward please email the parish office or if you come to the church you can give your details to Hayley. You must be over 18, and be in good health. There will be some training given and all volunteers will need to sign a form.
