Face Masks


While face masks are no longer a  legal requirement in places of worship from, it is recommended that they continue to be used in high-risk environments


Due to our size and layout this applies to our church, therefore we ask that everyone continues to wear face masks when attending church. If you do not wear a face mask, you may be preventing those who are more vulnerable from attending Mass safely. Please help allow everyone to attend Mass safely by wearing a face mask at all times in the church.


Stewards will continue to check that those entering the church are wearing a face mask and sanitising their hands.
