Resumption of Public Masses from Monday 6th July:
From this date we will be resuming our normal Mass schedule.
As with private visits for prayer, we will still need to take names and telephone numbers of those who attend, which will be kept for 21 days and then destroyed.
There is a need to make sure that we do not go beyond our designated numbers of those who are attending, i.e. 50 people at St Joseph’s and 30 at Our Lady of Lourdes.
While I do not anticipate that this will be a problem during the week, it will be necessary to book a place for the Vigil and the two Sunday Masses.
There will be an internet booking system to do this, coming live during the coming week on the website.
If you prefer, you can phone the presbytery to book a place, giving your name, the number of people from your household and your telephone number. I (in the case of telephone bookings) will then ring you to confirm that you are able to come along.
I am very aware that this all seems so very alien to me and to many others – but if it means we can celebrate Mass together safely then it something we will all have to put up with for a time.
God Bless, Fr Dennis.
