Please Note: It is now a requirement in Wales to wear face coverings in Public Buildings. Please ensure you bring a face covering to Mass. Thank you.
Due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, our churches are only gradually opening for public worship. The central church of St. Mary is temporarily the only church open for worship in the parish of All Saints Newport. As well as the limited seating at St. Mary’s we also have to take into consideration social distancing requirements, therefore the number of people the church can hold is far lower than usual.
We therefore need to ask you to book places at Mass, so that you will not arrive at church and find you cannot go in. Before booking for Mass please keep in mind the following:
- It is recommended that those aged 70 years or older and those with underlying medical conditions should remain at home and stay safe.
- The Sunday obligation remains dispensed until further notice. So do not worry if there is not space for Sunday Mass – simply come on a weekday when you can.
- Entry is dependent on holding a valid ticket to comply with track and trace requirements. On arriving at the church you will be asked to present your ticket, so please print the ticket once booking is complete.
- The doors to the church will open 20 minutes before Mass to allow adequate time for private preparation.
