Safe Practices in the Church

Posted 4th September 2020 in Announcements

We continue to be limited to a maximum of 50 people in the church at any time. In response to this, anyone who can attend Mass during the week is urged to make one of those days their ‘Sunday’ and so free up a place for someone who is working Monday to Friday. 

The document below gives more details on the safe practices that we are following.
