Re-opening Announcement

PLEASE BEAR WITH US! We are not re-opening just yet. Although the government announced today that churches can re-open for public worship on 4th July, we still await full guidance on the regulations for the celebration of Mass and the authorisation to re-open. Today we had a diocesan inspection in both churches, and we are pleased to announce that our planning and preparations met with approval. We are ahead of the game! A risk assessment will be drawn up by the inspector and this will need to be reviewed in the light of changes relating to Mass celebration. There also needs to be training for those involved and on-going review as we respond to differing situations. It is our hope that we will re-open in the summer at some stage. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED!
