Mass times

Masses will be held on the following days:

Wednesday 10.00am
Saturday 6.00pm
Sunday 11.00am

A maximum of 30 people will be allowed in the church and this will be on a first come, first served basis. 

Everyone entering the church will be required to bring and wear their own face coverings, to sanitise their hands on entering and exiting the church and to provide their name and telephone number for track and trace requirements.

There will be no Mass sheets available but parishioners are welcome to bring their own missal or download the Order of Mass to their phone/tablet. Each Sunday's Mass Readings and Antiphons will be printed in the newsletter.

Kneeling will not be permitted.

At the end of Mass parishioners will be asked to leave the church and grounds, as directed by the stewards, in a timely manner.

Please note that under current guidelines from the Bishops Conference of England and Wales there continues to be no obligation to attend Sunday Mass.  

Urgently Required: Volunteers to be stewards at Masses and to clean down surfaces afterwards. We will need as many people as possible to ensure that these vital roles are shared around the Parish. To volunteer please contact the Parish Council.

Donations: Income has been very low for some time and the church continues to have running expenses. We would be most grateful for any donations you can make. Payments to the following account would be appreciated:
HSBC, sort code 40-13-22, account number 61020625. If you can include a reference please include your name.
