On the subject of church opening - a message from Fr. Kevin >>>>>

Whilst there is the possibility of opening the church for private prayer and reflection, St Mary's will not open presently. There is a considerable onus on the community to maintain the highest standards of cleaning and supervision and at present we are unable to meet the Diocesan requirements.
Anthony, as Chair of the Pastoral Team will work with the parish office to draw up a list of those in the community who would like to pray in church, with the view of this happening in the future, subject to us complying with the guidance.
We would encourage you to continue to use the online Masses available and Bishop Richard's podcasts to aid your praying.
