Important Developments in Attending Mass In Our Parishes
Important Developments in Attending Mass In Our Parishes – NO NEED TO BOOK FROM THIS WEEKEND AT ST JOHN’S OR AT ST MARY MAGDALENE’S
In our efforts to encourage more people to return to attending Mass, we have suspended the necessity to book in advance,
So … prior booking will not be required – although a seat can still be be booked if preferred. …(although in keeping with Health and Safety regulations, we are still required to collect names and telephone numbers for Track and Trace, to use hand sanitisers and sanitise seating).
To help us with Test & Protect, the check-in Scotland app can be scanned at the door with your mobile phone camera. Extra helpers will be available to assist and explain the use of this app, or you can simply have your name recorded on the paper forms
Many thanks for your patience and support during this time of transition….
