Attendance at High Mass
St Mary's is open for private prayer and public worship at our weekday services.
On the grounds that the main Sunday Mass is that for which people travel in from all over, the decision has been taken to continue to live-stream the Sung Mass at 11am Sunday and not have the church open for members of the congregation to attend in person, at least as long as the Mayor's declaration of a Major Incident remains in place.
However the low Masses that occur each day of the week and Evening Prayer and Benediction on a Sunday tend to draw only a handful of people, being anyway those who are much more local, so we have decided to re-open these to the public.
The weekday masses will continue to be live-streamed as well so a choice continues there - and the Standing Committee in consultation with the PCC will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly.
