We are open for public mass. Welcome back!

Thank you for being so patient and understanding while we were closed- we are limited to the number of people we can allow on the premises at any time so we ask you  to continue to be patient and understanding while we adapt to the new guidelines.

The Red Cross will be available to help us by greeting you at the doors and to guide you to your seat.

We are so grateful to the many volunteers who are sanistising the church for us, and for the many groups of people who are helping out to ensure that our mass will go ahead.

We must take a personal responsibilty too to follow the guidelines issued by NPHET and the Government in keeping each other safe from the Covid19 Coronavirus.

  • limit the belongings you bring to mass and bring them with you at Holy Communion time as you will not be be sitting down in your seat again

  • The Church will close immediatley after Mass for 10-15 minutes, to allow our sanitising team to disinfect it again for contiued use throughout the day

  • Please continue to be patient


We continue to pray for protection from the Coronavirus for all of us and that a vaccine will be available soon.

We pray for all our frontline workers who each day struggle to care for our sick and dying.

We remember all who have fought the coronavirus that they will make a full recovery and we pray especially for all who have died during this pandemic – That they may Rest in God’s Peace.

Let us remember in our prayers all who mourn at this time.

Lord hear our prayers.
