Church is open for communal worship.   All possible covid-safety measures are in place here at Sacred Heart.  In accordance with government guidance, the length of Mass has been shortened and there is no singing.  Please do not attend church if you are sick or have any covid-like symptoms.  Please remember that you can only attend Mass with people from your own household or support bubble and, unless you are medically exempt, you must wear a face covering.  Please be guided by our wonderful volunteer stewards and follow the systems in place (including being shown to your place [places are limited in order to maintain distance between worshippers], movement at Holy Communion and staggered system of departure) for everyone’s safety.   Please maintain appropriate social distancing at all times.  Thank you for your patience and co-operation.

The temporary Mass schedule, worked out with our neighbours at St Joseph’s and St Thomas More’s, is in place, so that the whole week is covered by our three churches: 

Monday: 10.30am @ St Thomas More

Tuesday: 6pm @ Sacred Heart

Wednesday: 10.30 @ St Joseph’s

Thursday: 10.30am @ St Thomas More

Friday: 10.30am @ Sacred Heart

Saturday: 5.00pm @ St Joseph’s

Saturday: Confessions @ 10am @ Sacred Heart

Sunday:   9.00am @ St Thomas More; 9.30am @ Sacred Heart; 10.30am @ St Joseph’s & 6.00pm @ Sacred Heart

Please remember that, at the moment, the Sunday & Holy Day obligation is suspended.  Therefore, it does not matter on which day you attend Mass, so you can attend on a weekday as an alternative to Sunday if you wish.

Please check the newsletter for any changes (under ‘Information’ section above) 

Funerals are currently limited to covid capacity in church and are arranged through the Funeral Director.  Weddings are allowed 30 attendees.  Baptisms are currently limited to 30 attendees.

Keep safe & God bless you  and your families

Canon Stephen & Fr Dominique
