COMING TO MASS: COVID-
Please do NOT attend Mass if you are unwell or have any Covid symptoms]
There is still some risk associated with gathering for sustained periods in enclosed spaces and therefore there needs to be continued caution by all against infection. This, however, has to be balanced against the need to move forward safely towards a normal lifestyle. It is important that we continue to ensure that the Church remains a safe place where people can gather to worship. Consequently, while keeping in place some of our existing rules, we continue to review these on an ongoing basis. From Monday 1st May, the wearing of masks in Church will become an individual decision. We will still leave a supply of masks at both entrances to the Church for those who feel more comfortable wearing one. Please respect each individual choice. While formal social distancing is no longer required you should be sensitive to the needs of others around you. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
BOOKING TO COME TO MASS
It is no longer necessary to book to come to Mass at the moment.

THE PARADOX OF ABUNDANCE Over 800 million people go hungry each day. Yet the world produces over 4 billion tonnes of food and we only need 3.7 billion tonnes to feed everyone. From all this food produced, a third is wasted. As Pope Francis said, "Each of us has a role to play in transforming food systems for the benefit of people and the planet." Let’s respond to his call! CAFOD’s new campaign is called Fix the Food System. Please visit: www.cafod.org.uk/food for more information.
