REOPENING FOR HOLY MASS – NOTICE:  It is important to note that the Bishops of England and Wales will not be restoring the obligation to attend Sunday Mass at this stage.

We are working towards opening for Mass on Sunday 26 July 2020 at 09.30am, this will include a booking system for places as we can only accommodate 30 people in the church when following social distancing, I suspect it will all be rather unfamiliar and not as you were expecting. My first priority is your safety and hopefully you will be reassured by our preparations.

The plan will be to have the usual 3 Masses throughout the week, which may well be enough to be able to accommodate all those parishioners who want to attend Mass. As stated above, the Sunday obligation has been suspended and every day is like a Sunday,  therefore people who are able can attend the Wednesday or Saturday Mass taking the pressure of numbers from Sunday. Thank you to all for your commitment and support. Please see below Frequently asked questions document – I hope you find it helpful.
