We are proposing to reopen the church for public worship on Sunday 12th July with the Parish Mass at the usual time of 10.00am. It will be church but not as we know it! The church nationally and locally have given us certain rules to follow. For example there is to be no singing, no exchanging the peace, the altar rails will not be used and communicants will be asked to form a socially distanced line in the main aisle, you will also need to sanitise your hands before and after communion which will be in one kind i.e. the bread only, etc etc. Full details of all this will be posted before we reopen.
The Parish Mass will continue to be live streamed for the foreseeable future. I am anxious that no one feels that they must attend church in person. Everyone has to make their own decision based on their personal circumstances and concerns. Your safety and health is our priority.
With every blessing
