Since the situation with Covid-19 has worsened in recent weeks, the government has imposed new restrictions in the interest of public health. We were able to proceed with Mass on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day but unable to admit a congregation for the rest of the Christmas Season.
The new restrictions, from St. Stephen’s Day, will extend to the end of January, at least. Attendance at Weddings and at Funerals has also been reduced.
Mass is streamed live on the webcam which may be accessed from the homepage of the parish website. We hope that remote participation will be a worthwhile alternative for parishioners and others who find us there.
The Church is open for personal visits and for private prayer from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, Monday to Saturday. Please use the door by the Sacristy, use the hand sanitiser provided and observe the recommended social distance from other parishioners.
We regret that, since we must restrict our interactions with each other in these circumstances, we are unable to resume the service of bringing Holy Communion to our housebound parishioners. If you have family members, friends and neighbours, who are in this situation, please check that they are aware of our parish website and able to connect with our webcam.
God Bless and Stay Safe in these difficult times.
