UPDATE ON GUIDELINES AUGUST 2021
As from September all Masses will be public, It is important that we continue to ensure that the Church remains a safe place where people gather to worship. The overriding principles continue to be that we need to maintain preventative practices to stop the spread of the disease: these include taking account of the prevailing local conditions, continuing to use sanitisers and wearing face masks [unless you are unable to do so for medical reasons], general cleaning to a good standard (with attention to frequent touchpoints), maintaining 1 metre+ separation, good ventilation [doors will remain open during Mass and the heating has to remain off], registration of track and trace details [we are still obliged to keep record of people attending], and continuation of stewards at Mass. Full details can be found on the Church’s website.
