Why do I need to book?
Because of the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are gradually reopening our churches. As our churches open, the number of people they can hold is far lower than usual, due to requirements of social distancing. In order to maintain safe social distancing in our church and to provide an accurate record for the purposes of track and trace we ask you to book places at Mass. It also means that you are less likely to arrive at Church and find you cannot come in.
Sunday Obligation remains suspended
The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have stated that the Obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays remains suspended at the present time. Therefore, there should be NO rush to be at Mass on Saturday/Sunday. We ask for your fraternal charity … if you are able to attend Mass on a weekday please come then to make weekend slots available for those who work and cannot come during the week.
