Number of places for Mass
St Godric's 44
St Joseph's 59
For Saturday and Sunday Masses, the deadline for requesting a place at Mass is Noon on Friday. Please continue to book in for Mass. Some people are not booking in and just turning up at some of our weekend Masses. This gives extra work to the stewards and you run the risk of being turned away if the church is full. You no longer need to book a place at the weekday Masses, but will have to give your contact details to the stewards on arrival.
In accordance with Government Guidelines, each time you reserve a place, Marjorie will need your name and a contact number for track and trace purposes, should this become
necessary. If you leave a voicemail message, please leave your number as well.

Welcome Brother Paul to the Parish. Capuchin Friar, Bro Paul arrived ahead of the rest of his Community on Thursday to take up residence in Tenter House. We look forward to the Spirit of St. Francis coming to the North-East for the first time since the Middle Ages. Brother Paul is preparing the way for the rest of the Community, who should be with us early in the New Year. Covid restrictions are being lifted ever so gently soon. Whilst we all look forward to this, need I tell you that we are not out of the woods yet!!! Please continue your tremendous support by being vigilant, and responsible. Masks are an essential part of that vigilance, as are hand sanitising and social distancing. We still witness dreadful irresponsible behaviour around us in other parts of society where people gather. I continually hear visitors say how shocked they are at the disregard for protective measures in supermarkets etc. The Diocese has an excellent record of being Covid free in all churches. Let’s keep it so. Thank you.
