  • PLEASE BOOK A PLACE FOR MASS AND IF YOU DO, USE THAT PLACE!

Due to social distancing we can only fit 1/3 of our normal congregation in church over the weekend, even with 5 Masses. You must please book places and then make use of those places you have taken. Please try to arrive early and please do not deny others the chance to come to Mass by wasting a place.
  • PLEASE TRY TO BOOK BY FRIDAY EVENING!

We cannot guarantee that there will be time to update the bookings list after that.
  • PLEASE BRING A MASK!

We have a few for those who need them. This, distancing and sanitising hands are the most important thing we can do to keep each other safe
  • PLEASE BE POLITE AND CO-OPERATIVE WITH OUR VOLUNTEERS!

They are trying to help us out of their own goodwill. If you want to get annoyed with someone try the parish priest – he bites back!
  • LIVE-STREAM CONTINUES!

Mass and devotions continue to be live-streamed whenever possible, via Facebook or our newly re-designed website.
  • PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT YOUR PARISH AND EACH OTHER WITH PRAYER!

Keep up to date with what is happening via social media and our website.
  • PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR PARISH FINANCIALLY

We weathered the lock-down, but apart from some ring-fenced building funds we have only one months worth of income and expenditure in reserve now. Current giving only just covers day to day running costs. A minority of very generous parishioners are keeping us going at the moment and there is no external support from anywhere else. Those who are struggling must not worry about it, but those who can should think about helping.
