BOOKING HOTLINE SUNDAY MORNING MASSES
Please read the following carefully:
Places at 10am Sunday Mass need to be reserved. To simplify this we have created a dedicated ‘text hotline’. Should you wish to make a booking please send a text message to: 07946713007
Please give your name, and the number of people that you wish to reserve seats for at the Mass. Please also indicate whether or not any group members are part of the same household. You will be sent a confirmatory text stating that your request has been recorded. You can use this service to reserve seats for any Sunday 10am Mass during September. Your details will be kept for the track and trace purposes for 21 days and then deleted.
Should you not have the facility to send a text please send an email to email@example.com
If you are unable to send either a text or email, and have no one able to do this on your behalf, then please ring the Presbytery landline. However, it is requested that you please use this as the last resort.
Note from Fr. Darren: In recent weeks we have been very close to full capacity at the 10am Mass on Sunday mornings. I am delighted that we are having this problem. If we do find our capacity reached and we have to close the door there will be another Mass celebrated after the 10am Mass for those unable to enter. Therefore please reserve a place should you wish to attend this Mass. The ‘cut off’ time for reservations is 12noon on Saturday. Also, should you have a place reserved and realise that you will be unable to attend please let us know, as this will enable another place to be made available.
Please be aware that at present there are plenty of spaces at the 6pm Mass on Sundays, as well as at the Weekday Masses.
It is obligatory to wear a Mask at Church, unless you have an exemption or are under 11 years of age.
We must remember that the corona virus has not gone away.

You can only book one Mass for yourself (and those in your household/bubble) per week.
This is to allow others the opportunity to attend.
You cannot book more than one Mass at a time, as booking will only be available seven days ahead.
Booking for a particular Mass will close 24 hours beforehand.
Once booked your seat will be kept available for you until 10 minutes before Mass.
If someone is waiting, your seat will be given away.
Your seat will be allocated by a steward when you arrive.
Entry into the church will not be permitted once Mass has begun.
Even if you have pre-registered, you must be well enough to come to Mass,
if on the day you feel like you have a cough, a sore throat or a cold, then ring the Parish Office
and cancel your place. This will help greatly in keeping track of the numbers.
