The important message is CONTINUE TO BE CAUTIOUS.
We will see changes in church put into place by next weekend – There will be no need to book a place for mass at weekends, but the wearing of face coverings is recommended in church. You will still be asked to use your Covid NHS track and trace app to register as you come into church or if you do not have an app on your phone, please sign in on the sheet provided. The sign of peace continues to be suspended. We recommend that communion is received on the hand to avoid infection. The Holy Water stoups will not be used but a large jar of Holy Water will be available at the back of church should you wish to bring a small bottle and take some home. The Sacrament of reconciliation/confession can now resume (please note the times of confession in the newsletter). The church will still be ventilated. Singing at mass can now resume. Cards will be available as you enter church saying ‘please leave a space’ to put next to you if you prefer to give distance between you and the person next to you in church. The ‘one way’ system in church will be suspended.
If you are uneasy about being in crowds or have Covid symptoms, do not come to church – Stay home and keep yourself and others safe.
