As you know, most of the COVID restrictions have been lifted, including limits on indoor gatherings and social distancing. This being the case, all of the seats in the church are now open. We know that some people are still very nervous about returning to crowded situations, and we would ask everyone to be respectful of other people’s space and not sit very close to anyone outside your own group. As mentioned before, there is usually a good bit of space in the front section of the church and we would encourage you to use that section rather than crowd around at the back.
Face coverings are still required in indoor areas such as schools, shops, cinemas, theatres, and churches. This is to be reviewed at the end of February. While face coverings are in force communion should be received in the hand and not on the tongue.
We look forward to seeing you back at Mass when you feel comfortable about it.
