Everybody is reminded of these essential procedures:  
HANDS (use the hand sanitiser on the way in and out of church)
FACE (wear the face covering – it should be fitted properly over mouth and nose)
SPACE (observe social distancing everywhere, including inside and outside church) 

If you have any kind of symptoms (e.g. cough), even if the symptoms appear to be unrelated to the virus, you must not come to church. If you are at risk or very old you should think carefully about whether it is wise to come to church. Please also think about how you can safely get to and from church. Please also bear in mind the following:
1. If you have been to Mass during the week, there is no need to come back on Sunday. We need the places, especially at the 12pm Sunday Mass. The 9am Sunday Mass tends to be the most quiet. If you are late for Mass, you may be turned away if the church is at capacity.
2. We must socially distance inside the church. Individuals, couples or households can only sit where there is a green tick. No standing in the porch or sitting on the window sills at the back. The stewards will be asked to supervise this.
3. Please keep your distance during the Communion procession and don’t pass through the benches from the side aisles to the middle. Please go around the back.
4. When Mass is over please don’t linger or gather. The rule of six applies. At weekends, we are now asking parishioners not return to the church after Mass - we need more time for cleaning.
5. Please direct enquiries to the parish through the phone or email during office hours—not to the sacristy or at the back of church.
6. Please respectfully follow the instructions of the stewards. You must sanitise your hands on the way in - either with our sanitiser or your own—but it must be as you enter. Please don't say you did it in the car, or at home, or that you don't believe in it!
Thank you for your continued cooperation, patience and cheerful spirit. Keep safe!

Given the current situation and other complications that are arising at the present time, Fr David has reluctantly decided that the start of the new First Holy Communion programme should be delayed until January 2021. Families involved should receive an email or call from the parish in due course. Thank you to those who have sent back the forms - we will keep these on file and you won't be asked to re-register for January. Those who still have forms to be returned are asked to send them back as soon as possible. It is still our hope that next year's First Holy Communion Masses will be celebrated next May.

Best wishes to those children who celebrated their First Holy Communion this weekend. The First Holy Communions from earlier in the year have now been concluded. Thank you to our team of catechists and all involved in preparing the celebrations.
