Upcoming Church Events

Public Holy Mass 6th July – Important

HOLY MASSES  I am pleased to say that we are now permitted to open the church again for Sunday and weekday Masses.  This is good news!  Masses will resume from Sunday 6th July at the ‘usual’ times (8:30am,  10:30am and 5:30pm).

Please bear in mind the following if you intend to come to Mass:

  • Follow the guidance of the stewards for one-way entrance/exit through the church
  • Be sure to use the hand sanitiser provided on entering and leaving
  • DO NOT come to Mass if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Please be sure to sit 2 metres apart, except where you are with people from one household
  • Holy Communion will be distributed in one kind only, on the hand.  The priest will explain the procedure to you at the appropriate time.

The Sunday Obligation remains suspended, so there is no sin in not attending Sunday Mass.  Please, therefore, think about spreading out your Mass attendance to allow the largest number of people to be accommodated within the social distancing arrangements.

You are, of course, free to bring Gloves and Masks to Mass and use them if you feel it is safer.  Each person will be respected for the decisions that they make in this matter.  However, it would not be appropriate to receive Holy Communion while wearing gloves.

We proved in our first online prayer meet that praying together online while in isolation is possible!

When we come together in prayer and in worship the Holy Spirit annoints us. We can pray in the power of the Holy Spirit online together for our neighbours, friends, family and anyone who is in need. There are so many in need and, in faith, our prayers for them are always heard. Prayer is a vital weapon in this battle that we find ourselves in.

We next meet online on Monday in Holy Week, 6th April at 8pm GMT/BST.


All are welcome. All you need is a computer, mobile device, tablet or even a land land phone. Full details and the access numbers are here:
