An update from Fr Dominic (2) - July 2021

Published Date: 20th July 2021

Further Relaxation of Covid Restrictions

As we gradually come away from the restrictions, cancellations and losses of the last year and a quarter, you may be wondering about coming “back to Mass”. As your Priest I would encourage you and your Family to come to ONE Mass in any 7 day period. However, for those of you who might feel that you're not yet ready to come back inside our Church, we will continue to livestream and record Masses for you to view remotely.

I would also encourage you to consider coming to Confession ONCE A MONTH. I am available on Saturdays from after Mass until about 11.30am.


I would like to ask everyone to consider the more vulnerable members of our Parish. It may be both helpful and charitable to continue to sanitise, wear masks and to keep a metre apart.


Holy Mass is also offered at Holy Cross Priory and St. Augustine’s in Tunbridge Wells
