All Masses in our twinned parishes

Our churches have a limit of 100 people to attend a church service including, Mass, Funerals and Baptisms BUT there are also rules that parishes must follow. 

The main rule we have to follow is allowing four-square metres between those attending. This means that we are constricted by the amount of space in our churches and none of our churches will hold the 100 limit. Pews have been roped off to prevent certain pews from being accessed. Please sit on the ends of any pew and not near other people who are not from your family. Family groups may sit together. Please read the full rules in the weekly parish bulletin:

Names and contact details must be provided upon entering the church. Hand sanitiser is also provided.

The Archbishop's dispensation from the usual obligation to attend Sunday Mass still applies.
