Welcome back…it’s been too long a time.
After sixteen weeks many of our churches are now open for public worship and prayer. Welcome to the Mass. As we have the minimum of steward hygienists for all the Mass times this weekend, the 5.30pm Vigil Mass on Saturday, andthe 9.30am and 11.00am Masses on Sunday can be offered. In compliance with Government measures, 30 people may attend each Mass (ideally, pre-registered), and your test and trace details should be left with us at church.

See the re-opening of our churches for public worship on our Covid-19 page. There is also a link to the Diocese of Leeds questions and answers about procedures as lockdown is eased.

Father Nigel suggested we start a WhatsApp group for the whole parish so we can keep in contact with one another. Barbara has kindly agreed to set this up. She is contacting everyone she can. If you have not been invited and you don't know her number please let me know by emailing me(Aileen) and I will forward your mobile number to her. (I do not like to advertise her number on the web, and the email address I am giving you is not my family/friends one).
