World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly 
The first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, in which we are all invited to celebrate and give thanks for the role and contribution of grandparents and older people to their families and our parishes will be held this weekend (Sunday 25 July). 

We are all encouraged to make a visit or call an elderly person living alone in the community, naturally observing relevant Covid guidelines.

The Sunday Liturgy, in particular the Prayers of the Faithful, will reflect the occasion.

COVID –  You will experience some changes within our Church as seating is now compliant with the new socialdistance requirement of 1 metre between household groups.  We are now using ‘every other’ row (‘even’ numbers 2, 4 etc) so only 1 row empty which will still be used for distribution of Holy Communion.  The good news is that this increase in capacity means that none of the Masses this weekend are oversubscribed.

The following will still be mandatory though:

  • Continue to book for Sunday Masses (including Saturday Vigil) 
  • Face masks to be worn at all times in church, even when singing
  • Hand sanitiser to be used at entry and exit to Church
  • Hymn books will be quarantined after each use
  • No Holy Water or distribution of Precious Blood
  • Track and Trace information will still be collected
  • Stewarding will still be in place to keep us all safe and secure - Cleansing of all pews after each service is still under review but we expect that to change shortly


RCIA – the next RCIA programme will begin on Wednesday 18th August.  If you or anyone you know are interested in becoming a Catholic then please speak to Fr John.
