Public Masses at The MHR
From Saturday, 4th July we are going to be able to begin celebrating public Masses again provided we follow the rules around social distancing.
From Saturday, 4th July weekend Mass times will be as follows:
Sunday: 8.30am and 11am
Weekday Masses: 9.15am Monday - Friday
In order to attend one of the weekend Masses you will need to contact the Parish Office. The Parish Office is open on Thursday and Friday mornings from 9am to 1pm on 01277 624891.
When you phone you will need to give your name and contact details and how many people will be attending with you. Please note that at present it is possible to only make a booking for up to 5 people. If you have any mobility issues please inform the Parish Office so that you are able to be seated in an appropriate section of the church.
If you are able to attend one of the weekday Masses it may be preferable to do so in order to allow more availability at the weekend for those who are working during the week.
The capacity of the church has been reduced in line with Government guidance and there will be a maximum number of approx. 50 people allowed during each Mass.
To ensure the health and safety of all parishioners coming to Mass please make sure that you are in the church at least 10 minutes before the start of Mass so that the Stewards are able to seat you in plenty of time. The Stewards will also direct you when it is time to receive Holy Communion.
Also please make sure that you sanitise your hands when you arrive and leave. There will be no singing during Mass and the toilets will be closed so please make sure that you go before you go!
All the arrangements that we are putting in place will be continually assessed and reviewed as we move forward with the process of reopening the church.
In the meantime the YouTube Mass will continue to be available every week and it will be possible to listen to the 11am Mass via the telephone link.
If you would like to volunteer as a Steward for the weekend or for the weekday Masses please email the Parish Office at email@example.com
