Resumption of Public Mass
The dispensation from attending Mass is still in place because of the pandemic.
All our Masses, weekday and weekend, are streamed on the internet and are best accessed from the parish website.
Public Mass has resumed for restricted numbers (50 maximum) in both Sts Alphonsus & Columba and the Church of the Apostles.
If you have an underlying condition or are unwell, especially with respiratory symptoms or a temperature, please do not to come to public Mass, but continue to participate online or via TV.
We would ask you please to queue up outside the church (keeping the 2 meters distance) and to follow the instructions of our stewards on hand sanitising, where to sit, and Holy Communion. Please follow the one-way system in the church. And facial coverings are strongly recommended.
Funeral Masses are still limited to 50 family members and close friends and the 2 meters distance needs to be respected in the church and church grounds.
Our First Holy Communions have been completed. The sacrament of Confirmation for small groups will take place in September and October. Letters have been sent to parents and guardians and Bookings will close on 3rd August.
Late applications cannot be accepted due to the restrictions on numbers.
Single Baptisms will resume in August. Our secretary, Jo, is contacting those whose bookings were postponed.
