Booking for Mass
There is a need to make sure that we do not go beyond our designated numbers of those who are attending i.e. 80 people at St Joseph’s and 30 at Our Lady of Lourdes.

There is now an online booking system to do this on the parish 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 will then ring you to confirm that you are able to come along.

The Government’s latest guidance issued on 4th August now requires by law that face coverings are worn in places of worship. This obviously will exclude those who are on the Government list of those who are exempt from wearing a face covering.
God Bless, Fr Dennis.
