Great News. After 8 months St Anne’s is to open again for Mass on Saturday 24th October.
Attendance will have to be pre-booked with social distancing restrictions in place and the wearing of masks essential. Please see full details of mass times and pre-booking details on the Mass Times section of the website.
The Diocese have issued an updated booklet for the re-opening of churches. Click here to download.
Ultimately the decision on opening of St Anne’s or any church will made by the Diocese. We at St Anne’s however still need volunteers to act as Stewards as and when we re-open and until we get adequate numbers the church will not be considered for re-opening. The requirements needed to fulfil this role are with the updated booklet.
If you are able to carry out this role please contact Fr Paul at St Augustine’s 0191 4693042 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now we are able to celebrate mass at a limited number of churches. Cannon Christopher Thomas has issued a set of guidelines we will have to follow titled Guidance for the Celebration of Mass. Please read carefully before attending mass. Click here to download.
