Public worship at Holy Cross returned on Sunday 12 July. The pattern for the next few weeks will be that there will be two services on a Sunday morning in the Old Church at 8am and 9.30am. Both services will be Said Masses, as singing is currently not allowed. Communion will be given as a wafer only.
Risk assessments have been completed and a thorough cleaning regime is in place for everyone’s safety. The seating in the church has been laid out to ensure adequate social distancing, as you can see in the photograph. This means the limit for each service is 30 people. Please come early to ensure you can get a seat and please be understanding if you are turned away because the limit on numbers has already been reached.
The safety of worshipers is vital, so please if you attend church follow any instructions given by the welcomers and church wardens. Currently the New Church remains out of bounds, so unfortunately we cannot provide access to refreshments or the toilets.
