Good news! The church will be re-opening for individual private prayer from Tuesday 23rd June. Confession will also be available.
We have worked tirelessly to ensure social distancing and hygiene measures are in place. This includes a one way system and partial unavailability of some seats in the church.
Passkeepers will be on hand to guide people to their seats, as well as ensuring everyone is wearing face masks and using hand sanitiser.
We've produced a short video introduction to explain some of the measures which are in place. https://youtu.be/gFHbNjbeDDo
If you have any questions or concerns about coming back to church, get in touch with Fr Emmanuel or any member of the Parish Council.
It is hoped that the Government will give the green light for re-opening of churches very soon, and the Archdiocese has provided some guidelines for when that does happen.
Initially, churches will be open for private prayer only. At St Joseph's, we will have the church open on Sundays between 12pm and 4pm for Eucharistic adoration. There will be strict hygiene and social distancing measures in place. Please follow all instructions for entering and exiting the church.
