We are pleased that St Michael’s Church can reopen for public worship on Wednesday 15 July for our 10am Mass. There will also be Sunday Mass for the first time since lockdown on 19 July at 11am.
There will be special provisions to keep worshippers as safe as possible. Hand sanitizer must be used on entering and leaving church. Seating will be distanced at 2 metres. Communion (wafer only) will be given by the priest to the people in the pews.
Services will be shorter than usual with no Choir or singing, but a Cantor on Sundays – about 45 minutes.
A ‘one-way’ system will be in place. Please enter at the South-west door as usual. Toilet available if needed. Sorry, no refreshments. Sit only in a marked pew seat. Exit by Choir Vestry door bnear the statue of Our Lady.
Please do not attend church if you are feeling ill or are shielding or vulnerable. May God bless you and keep you safe.
