The church has very limited seating to enable us to keep all of our parishioners safe, so we ask that you BOOK IN ADVANCE for Saturday evening and Sunday Masses. You will receive confirmation of your booking. Please email the parish office to book.
Please be aware that Lorraine has been part furloughed and therefore will not be checking emails every day - book as early in the week as possible.
Attending Mass. If you would like to attend Mass, please book in advance by either calling the parish office and leaving a voicemail message with your name, contact details and preferred day/time or sending an email to with the information. You will receive confirmation of your booking. Please book as early in the week as possible. The parish secretary has been part furloughed and so emails are only checked occasionally during the week. Email sent from Friday afternoon/over a weekend will not be picked up until Monday morning.
Stewards. Stewards will be in the porch and will direct you to the next available seat when you arrive.
Limited seating. The Government and the Diocese have advised that people should remain 1 metre apart where possible. There will be one empty pew in between each available pew. This is to allow space for safe social distancing in accordance with the Government guidelines. We will try our very best to keep to this.
Access. As there is only one entrance, a one-way system is in place and you will be directed by a steward to the next available space. This is so that we try to avoid crossing paths with other people where possible. Please do not linger in the porch or outside before or after Mass as there is not enough space to allow for social distancing.
Communion. During the Communion Rite, from the altar Fr Brendan will say, “The Body of Christ,“ and everyone replies, “Amen”. This will not be done at the point you receive Communion. Just before you receive Communion, unloop your mask. We ask that you hold your arms out fully to receive Communion in your hand and then immediately after, replace your mask. If you are not comfortable receiving Communion, you can still make an act of spiritual Communion. The prayer can be found at the end of the newsletter.
Cleaning. The used spaces in the church will be cleaned thoroughly after each Mass.
Collection. The collection plate will not be passed around and instead there will be a retiring collection with baskets in front of the altar and by the door as you exit the church. However we encourage everyone who can, to donate by standing order or direct bank payment as this minimises the handling of cash and therefore minimises the risk of spreading the virus. Regardless of the form the donation takes, we are very grateful for all the financial support given by parishioners.
Please note that the toilets are not available for use.
Prayers and Homilies of Pope Francis
The Holy See has made available a digital publication containing a collection of prayers, intercessions and the Pope's homilies to help sustain the Church’s sense of communion and to encourage us amid the coronavirus pandemic.
