CHURCHES REMAIN OPEN
During this new national lockdown it is more important than ever that churches are sanctuaries for people's emotional and spiritual well-being. The Government recognises that places of worship fulfil a unique role in communities and the lives of many people and they have confirmed that you may leave your home to go to Mass.
Their announcement also confirms that, because stringent and Covid-Compliant hygiene measures have been put in place that exceed many other indoor venues churches are not places of high risk.
HOLY FAMILY CHURCH - TRACK AND TRACE
The QR bar code for the church is displayed on the poster which you'll find on the notice boards on either side of the main church doors as you enter Holy Family Church.
Scan it with your smart phone or mobile device to check into the NHS Track and Trace App.
The NHS Track & Trace app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
► REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES ◄
These procedures are the "new normal" and are there to protect everyone by making every possible effort to keep the risk of infection as low as possible.
If you do not wish to do things according to the "new normal" then you should not come to church at this time.
Please note that Places of Worship are exempt from the Government's latest regulations which come into effect from Monday 14th September placing a limit of six persons for social gatherings.
The church therefore remains open and Mass continues to be celebrated with the procedures continuing to be strictly followed.
