As you are aware, nearly all COVID19 restrictions in England have been removed by the government since Monday 19th July. Recently at the meeting of the clergy in the pastoral area of Reading, we agreed in our parishes to continue to follow the current COVID 19 procedures as we all have the responsibility to keep each other safe, especially the vulnerable.
In unity with all priests in the area I ask you to continue wearing face coverings in church as a voluntary measure for the foreseeable future.
The booking system for Sunday Mass will continue but if you would prefer to not book in advance, then please do feel free to come for Mass and you will be accommodated.
The sanitising procedure and social distancing will both continue. All this will all be reviewed in a few weeks with Canon Michael Dennehy and the other priests in the Pastoral area.
At the same time, let us remind ourselves of our Sunday Obligation and start to come back to Sunday Mass in person. Please find attached a letter from the Bishops’ conference and a letter from Bishop Philip on this topic.

Weekday Mass: From 23rd Aug 21 to 17th Sept 21 – there will be no Weekday Mass in church. Father Stan will be away and we wish him a restful break. Mass Intentions can still be made as Father Stan will continue to celebrate Mass during his break.
