Covid Regulations at Mass after July 19th
The guidelines we have received from the bishops encourage us to continue to create a safe environment in places of worship. For this reason, we will still be asking everyone to wear face coverings inside church, although it is no longer a legal requirement. Singing will only be permitted if people are wearing facemasks. In terms of social distancing, the bishops have proposed that we either designate certain Masses as socially distanced Masses or designate certain areas of the church which would remain for social distancing. In order for us to plan how to respond to this, everyone will be asked before they enter Mass this weekend whether they would prefer in the future to remain socially distanced or whether they would be happy to return to normal seating. Once we have collected this data, we will be able to decide how we organise each Mass. As we cannot do this till after this weekend, we will continue with the same system for booking Mass next weekend and make the changes on the weekend of July 31st / August 1st. We will however be able to begin singing next weekend.
