7th August 2021
The Diocese has been advised that the First Minister has continued to ease the Covid safety restrictions and we have been able to implement these changes gradually over these weeks. Please continue to sanitise on entry and exit, please wear a face-covering indoors and please continue to observe the ‘One Way System’. From Tuesday of this week (10th August) a further relaxation of the Covid-19 Regulations comes into effect. All social distancing rules will be relaxed and so there is no limit on our capacity for Mass in the Church and so there will be no need to book a place - Deo Gratias! We are still required, however, to have a record of who is present for the ‘Track and Trace’ System to contact us if someone else present tests positive.
So; you can either book in as normal, OR scan our unique QR Code on your phone as you enter - laminated posters with the QR Code are in the Entrance Porch - please let the stewards know your preferred method of registration. Please also pass the word that we are now fully open and able to welcome all who wish to come!
We will continue to ventilate the Church well, we will also be able to resume reciting the Gloria and Creed (when the schools return) and have restored the procession for Holy Communion. This procession will be directed by the Stewards and we will come forward to receive Holy Communion section by section as they direct, please come forward by the middle aisle and return to your seat by the side aisles.
Please remember to maintain the minimum of one metre distance from those around you at all times. It would be worth bearing in mind that the pandemic is not over. The current strain of the virus is highly infectious and at the moment it seems that younger rather than older people are more vulnerable. So we will continue to be considerate to one another and careful when we gather. We will continue to ease restrictions as the situation permits. We will continue the restricted timetable for the celebration of Mass until the schools resume.
As advance booking is no longer required for weekend or weekday Masses, the booking facility will be there for the ‘Track and Trace’ System which will make it easier for the Stewards. If you are coming without a booking or do not plan to scan the QR Code in the Entrance Porch, please arrive in good time so that you can be signed in and you do not prevent the Stewards, who have been so generous with their time, being late for Mass. Rather than emailing the Parish, the useful method and timings for bookings that have evolved will be used, so on the link above, bookings for Mass are available from 7 days until 24 hours before the celebration of Mass on the Internet, from 24 hours until 2 hours before the celebration of Mass telephone bookings to the Parish can be made. Fr. Michael will send you an email or call you back to confirm your booking.

Monday: 11.00am Our Lady of Peace Primary School. We will let you know when parishioners will be welcome in the school.
Tuesday: 10.00am St. Conval’s.
