With the 6 Sept easing of Government restrictions, ‘Religious services and ceremonies (for example Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, Weddings & Funerals) can proceed with 50% of venue capacity, regardless of immunity status of attendees’.
This is ‘Subject to appropriate protective measures including social distancing as much as possible, hand sanitising, face masks etc’.
Since the social distancing is not specified, out of concern for the well-being and health of parishioners, we will maintain the 2m social distancing until otherwise informed.
The removal of the 50-person pod requirement means that up to 130 people may be admitted to our church for Mass etc.
We look forward to 22 October when all restrictions are due to be lifted.
