Resumption of Mass
Sunday Masses have now resumed in our Church
To facilitate the resumption of Masses as we step out of the COVID-19 lockdown, please follow the following social distancing measure that we have put in place.
Book Your Place in Advance
You will need to book your place for a specific Mass if you wish to attend: email us or phone 0131 669 5618 between 10am on Wednesday and 2pm on Friday to book ahead.
Phone line open between 10am to 12 noon Wednesday to Friday.
When you arrive, you will be escorted to your seat and you will not be able to choose your own seat. Please maintain a two metre distance from others during your time at church.
Face covering must be worn while inside our church and throughout Mass. Please come prepared and bring your own face covering.
Please sanitise your hands as you enter and leave our church. Hand sanitiser will be available at our entrance and exit.
Masses at St John's
Saturday Vigil 6.30pm at St John’s
Sunday 9.30am at St John’s (also live-streamed)
Each Mass will be 30 minutes long with a reduced number of readings and a shortened homily.
Due to social distancing, we can only allow a maximum of 42 attendees at each Mass
Live-streamed Masses will continue to be available online at 11am on Sunday as an alternative
Deep cleaning will take place after every Mass
Weekday Masses will still continue to be live-streamed online without a congregation
We are very grateful to our welcomers, stewards and cleaners who are making it possible for us to have our churches open.
