TO BOOK A PLACE FOR MASS - Phone 07709 091786
The line can only take your calls on Thursday or Friday between 10 am and 12 Noon
Bookings can be made by individuals for themselves, on behalf of another parishioner, or for a family/household.
Having a booking system in place will help us to comply with Official Guidance, to ensure that attendance does not exceed the determined capacity of the church and to reduce the chance of parishioners being turned away when arriving for Mass without pre-booking.
If a suitable bench is available, then you will be advised where that bench is in the church. If no bench is available to meet your request, your details will be held and if a bench becomes available later you will be called back and advised which bench has been allocated.
You will be required to confirm your name and telephone contact number. Individuals may call on behalf of a Family/Household group to book seats on their behalf.
Your name and contact details will be held for 21 days. Parishioners who come to church on a day when Mass is being said but have not pre-booked will only be allowed into church i
