On Sunday 19th July we celebrated Mass in church with a congregation for the first time since Sunday 15th March! The service was streamed live and can be found on our YouTube channel. On Sundays we will meet physically at 4pm for the time being, but our service will continue to be streamed on YouTube.
During the COVID-19 emergency we have been meeting online on Sundays at 11am on YouTube and on Facebook to worship and to share fellowship. We are continuing with this service, though the church will soon be open for worship and for private prayer. Please see our Homepage for the current link www.parishiod.org.uk
If you go to our website at www.parishiod.org.uk you'll find lots of other worship recordings.
Coronavirus Measures We are looking forward to welcoming people back into the church to worship in person and all together. However, we should not expect to be able to stop using some of the measures that have kept us safe since March 2020 for the foreseeable future. We will still need to be careful about hand hygiene; we will still not be able to sing as a whole congregation; nor will we be able to drink from the communion chalice. We will still need to keep socially distanced, and so places at the Sunday Mass will be limited to 50 people. When you come to Mass you are required to sign in for Track and Trace both with the QR code and the paper list. You will also be expected to wear a face-covering. We'd ask you to take away your used noticesheet when you leave.
Those who are extremely clinically vulnerable should not attend church services in person until they are told otherwise. They should stay at home. Resources are available for you online and as a prayer booklet. Please contact Fr. Tom if you would like to pray on your own in the church, and an opportunity will be made for you.
