Churches to close for Public Worship
You will have seen in the news that the Government has decided to close Churches for public worship as from Thursday 5 November. Despite opposition from our Bishops and the leaders of other faith communities, they have not changed their minds on this.
Unfortunately that means that:
- Our Church is unable to open for Mass from Thursday 5 November.
- Any bookings you have for Mass will be unavailable.
If you have booked on behalf of someone else please try to let them know.
The lockdown is due to end on 2 December; as soon as we can we will be offering Mass bookings again.
