We will be able to open the Church for Mass from 4th July.
The Church will be open for private prayer from 9 to 10am each day up to 3rd July.
Masses will be at the normal times on Sundays and weekdays with an additional Mass at 5pm on Sunday afternoons.
i.e. 6.30 pm Saturdays and 9.30, 11, 5 and 7.30pm on Sundays.
Weekdays – Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10am
Tuesday and Thursday 7.30 am.
Please use hand gel on entering the Church. The holy water stoops are taped out of use.
Please use alternate benches – so as to maintain distance – half the rows are taped off. Make sure that you do not leave anything in the benches.
It will not be possible to use Mass books or hymn books.
It will not be possible to have servers, readers or Eucharistic Ministers for the time being.
For Holy Communion, please come up in line, keeping distance as far as possible. You are asked to receive the Sacred Host in the hand. It will nto be possible to offer the chalice for the time being.
It is not possible to use the offertory baskets but you are asked to place your offertory donations in the box on the paper rack.
Strictly the lavatories should be locked out of use and if possible, please do not use them. If children find it necessary to use them, parents are asked to check to ensure that they are kept clean.
I am sure that you understand the need for all this and appreciate your help.
Monsignor Nicholas Rothon
