COVID ROADMAP

UPDATE

The government has removed some of the legal requirements regarding COVID, however we need to ensure that we continue to keep each other safe and our churches be a place where parishioners can come and worship with confidence and feel safe. The Catholic Bishop's Conference of England and Wales has recommended that churches continue with a number of measures. We strongly recommend the use of face coverings whilst attending church; we are continuing to provide hand sanitiser; if you wish to check in at any of our churches please use the QR code or give your details to a steward; if anyone has particular health care needs or concerns please speak with the stewards; Although social distancing is no longer required you may prefer a gap of one or two seats as before; we will continue with our one way system; the physical sign of peace remains suspended; congregational singing will resume but will be phased in gently. Face coverings should be worn whilst singing until infection levels reduce; Holy Communion will continue under one kind. Thank you for your support.

We remind you that if a child or a teenager wants to be prepared to receive
First Holy Communion (and is at least in school year 3) or Confirmation (and is at least in school year 9) we will ask them to come regularly to one of the three groups according to their age. They will receive the First Holy Communion or Confirmation when they are ready (usually after one year).
