Emerging from Lockdown.
- May I remind those of you who make your weekly offering to the church through the baskets to do so AS YOU ENTER the church so that the basket can be brought forward in the procession. If you forget there will still be a basket there at the exit.
- Social distancing of 1 metre is required. We wear face coverings, we maintain a high ventilation and we don’t have communal singing or recitation of the Gloria and Creed.
The Parish Hall
Needless to say, our planned opening of the hall for refreshments after mass has been postponed
