The Government has announced that places of worship will be open for communal worship, in all tiers, from 2nd December, subject to Covid-safety and social distancing measures being in place.
Sacred Heart will resume (on Friday 4th December) the temporary schedule, worked out after the first lockdown with our neighbours at St Joseph’s and St Thomas More’s, so that the whole week is covered by our three churches.
Temporarily, then, service times at Sacred Heart are:
Tuesday: Mass @ 6pm
Friday: Mass @ 10.30am
Saturday: Confessions @ 10am
Sunday: Mass @ 9.30, followed by a second Mass if the first is full and further people wish to attend; Mass at 6pm, followed by a second Mass if the first is full and further people wish to attend
As many of you have experienced, all possible measures are in place at Sacred Heart. Please remember you can only attend Mass with people from your own household or support bubble and, unless you are exempt, you must wear a face covering. As before, please be guided by the stewards and follow the systems in place, for everybody’s safety.
Funerals are limited to 30 people and are arranged via the Funeral Director
Baptisms are limited to 6 people (including the one being baptised), are normally celebrated after Confessions on a Saturday (at 11am) and are arranged, at the moment, directly with Canon Stephen
