Sunday Masses are back – but you’ll need to book your place by calling 07444 079157. Masses must be booked by 8pm the previous day. We are working towards making booking available online very soon. 

Please find below updated guidance from Bishops’ Conference and in line with government guidelines on the wearing of face masks.
• All those attending churches must wear a face covering unless exempt from doing so. This is intended for the good of all who gather in the Church for Mass as it is an enclosed public space where there are people from differing households who they do not normally meet;
• Priests in the sanctuary, providing they are sufficiently distant (2m or more) from the congregation, do not need to wear a face covering except when distributing Holy Communion;
• The priest, and those who are distributing Holy Communion should wear face coverings when doing so. The communicant should unloop their face covering and consume the Sacred Host and then replace the facecovering before moving back to their pews in an orderly manner.

There is a one-way system: walking towards the altar down the centre aisle, and then returning to the main entrance down the sides, just like during communion. You will need to maintain a 2-metre distance. This also means not sitting at the end of the row, but walking 2 metres (approx 6 feet) away from the aisle. It is also necessary for us to know who has been in the church on which day, in case there is any later development. We have loose forms for those in attendance to complete, which can then be deposited in a secure box. So, the path has been prepared for you, we have gone before and made everything ready – come and spend time with our Lord in His House!

I welcome you to Our Lady of Peace & Blessed Dominic Barberi Parish. You are loved by God! Christ came for you. Christ is for you “the Way, the Truth and the Life!” (Jn 14:6). Entrust your fears, your afflictions, your burdens to the heart of Mary. With Mary's help, we learn to recognise and embrace the love of Christ in every moment of our lives. The Parish is a framework in which we can learn to grow in faith through the Liturgy, Adoration, the spirituality of the Angelus, the Divine Mercy and the Rosary. We, as adults, youth and children, learn how to grow in faith together. We offer our hearts and hands to Jesus and Mary to reach the vulnerable, the needy and the lost sheep in all areas of life. You are welcome!

Fr. Stan Gibziński,
Parish Priest of Our Lady of Peace and Bl Dominic Barberi
