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.

Our first group of First Communicants were welcomed at St. Joseph’s and St. Godric’s in the rarefied atmosphere of restricted numbers. The made for a very different celebration. Yes, the full churches were a miss, yet as some pointed out, there was something lovely in the simplicity of the occasions. Thanks to all who made them happen – the teachers, catechists, church stewards, parents and the two priests – Fr. Andrew from St. Cuthbert’s and Fr. Paul Douthwaite from St. Patrick’s, Langley Moor. We cautiously move towards normality with church services. Thanks for your continued co-operation.
