Upcoming Events

Covid 19 – Update for Parishioners, 26th November 2021.


Dear Fellow Parishioners,

Our Church is open to celebrate Holy Mass for those parishioners who are FULLY VACCINATED

  However, we still have restrictions in place regarding maintaining a Covid Safe environment and these must be strictly adhered to at all times:-

 Face coverings should be worn if suitable distancing cannot be maintained when inside the Church.

Parishioners must show proof of being fully vaccinated

 (Those parishioners who attended Masses last weekend do not need to show us proof again, but it is advisable to have this with you)

QR check-in to those who have mobile phones (we will have resources to check in those people who do not have a mobile phone)

Social distancing, 1 person per 4sqm is encouraged 

Hand sanitizing is required.

Entry will be through the front door and exit through the side door.

 These Covid safe rules are based on Public Health and Government advise, we as parish, must ensure that we display these restrictions and have all the necessary notices and advice available to every one who enters our Church.

We thank you again for your support, patience and understanding with these ever changing rules, but the most important news for our parish is that we are re-opening and we must ensure we stay open and to do this, we need everyone to assist us to achieve this ongoing need to be vigilant, not complacent, as we move into a "Covid Normal" future.

God Bless

 Father Joseph and the Parish Leadership Team
