Weekend Masses at St Joseph’s Church

Wearing masks at Mass, sanitising hands and social distancing continue. Holy Communion is once again being at the Altar, seat by seat to avoid crowds.

  • Pre-registration for weekend Masses is not now required. Numbers are still limited, but more seats are now available for use. If the Church and Hall become full, unfortunately, no more people can be admitted.
  • Entrance for Mass is by the main doors from the parvis.
  • So far, so good! If this continues to go well, we can hope and pray that we will not need to return to Registration.
