Church Live & Usual Timetable
CHURCH OPENING FOR PRIVATE PRAYER UNTIL THURSDAY 3rd DECEMBER 2020
We are delighted once again to have our Church open for normal services as from Thursday 3rd December 2020.
Although there is still no obligation to attend Mass, those who come must comply with the government guidelines of maintaining safe distancing and hygiene, as we are not out of the woods yet with Covid-19!.
Please following the mandatory requirements when you come for PRIVATE PRAYER:
Everyone is to wear a face covering at Mass.
Everyone is to sanitize their hands on entering and leaving the church.
Entrance to the church is by the main doors and exit by the side doors (maintaining social distancing of at least one meter at all times).
Please place your offering in one of the two large boxes at the entrance to the church (or the smaller one on the sanctuary).
Everyone is required to give their name and either a mobile or landline number or email address or postal address.
( which will be kept for 21 days to facilitate track and trace ).
· The two side aisles are for couples and families. In the main aisles, please observe distancing by only sitting on a spot marked by the cross sticker.
There is a maximum capacity of 100 people in the church.
There are no toilets in use either in the church or in Pugin Place.
· Candles are permitted to be lit.
There are No Confessions.
I am sure you will agree that these requirements are very small crosses to bear when we consider how Jesus suffered for us and how wonderful it will be to receive the real presence of Him in the Eucharist after so long a wait.
Let us ponder on the following words: “It was Mary who first adored the Incarnate Word. He was in her womb, and no one on earth knew of it. Oh! how well was our Lord served in Mary’s virginal womb! Never has He found a ciborium, a golden vase more precious or purer than was Mary’s womb! Mary’s adoration was more pleasing to Him than that of all the Angels. The Lord ‘hath set His tabernacle in the sun,’ says the Psalmist. The sun is Mary’s heart,” and “Mary is the aurora of the beautiful Sun of Justice.” Julian Peter Eymard
God bless you all
