Here is the latest news from Fr Charles about Church and our Community  

Lockdown and Mass

Latest Changes from Fr Charles with regard to the latest government guidelines:

Welsh Govt guidelines allow us to celebrate Mass as usual. This is due to the large size of our church and the good discipline of our volunteers and you, the parishioners. The situation will be regularly reviewed during this lockdown period and details will be available on this website.

Meanwhile all places of worship will also be open for weddings or funerals, where people can attend at the invitation of the organiser. The number who will be able to attend a ceremony indoors will be limited by the capacity of the venue where it is being held, once physical distancing measures have been taken into account. 

To ensure that the maximum number that can attend is observed, attendance must be by invitation only. Numbers are constrained by the need to put physical distancing measures in place.

Post-funeral wakes or gatherings are not allowed. You can go to a cemetery to visit a family member’s grave but you should ensure that you follow physical distancing practices when doing so.

 

IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS DURING THE VIRUS TIME PLEASE FEEL FREE TO RING FR CHARLES RAMSAY ON:

07503 905414

Any news will be disseminated via this website so please bookmark it for future reference.

Please check out this week’s Parish Bulletin for the latest news about church activities during the current lockdown.
