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 2.00pm 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.

For more information about days, booking in and staying safe at Mass please click the link below.

Thanks for your co-operation in ensuring we maintain the safe space in our two church buildings. Again, thanks to our stewards. Our schools take a well-deserved break. I hope our teachers have a good rest after the horrendous year coping with the effects of Covid.
