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.

It’s good to see returning numbers to our Masses. Please, please, do not forget to book in. It saves embarrassment and offence, too. Please don’t put stewards in the difficult position of having to refuse you a place in church for Mass. But the law and government directives demand this. Thanks . The Hardship Fund is now active in supporting those in need. Do spread the word. First Communions take place soon in a different setting. Limited numbers, but with the possibility of being more poignant. My first baptism since lockdown in March was recently, and parents and godparents found it a very moving ceremony. Every cloud.... I haven’t been doing reflections of late because of the return to regular masses. However, some of you have asked for more. I’m delighted that you can get something out of them, so I will try and do some again. Thanks for that.
