St John Vianney R C Church

We have great news! From 4 July the public celebration of the Mass and other sacraments is to be resumed. This however is under strict guidelines. Therefore the celebration of Mass will be under the following temporary restrictions:

Social distancing MUST be maintained, if possible 2m, if not then 1m + face masks.
We must continue to follow the one-way system and be attentive to the instructions of the stewards.
There can be no live singing, although the use of recorded music is fine.
Holy Communion will be administered in one kind only.
Mass must be celebrated as quickly as possible though without undue haste and there can be no post Mass gatherings.
No Mass leaflets are to be given out.
Weddings and funerals can now be celebrated in church but without the Mass (maximum 30 people).

Please note there are specific guidelines for eucharistic ministers and readers.
In order to allow as many people as possible to attend, the following Sunday programme will be followed until further notice. (I will attempt within the limitations to make the 10am Mass as much like our usual morning Mass as possible):

9am​Low Mass
10am ​Solemn Mass


5pm​Low Mass

Tuesday to Saturday will revert to the usual pattern of:

8am ​Office of Readings & Morning Prayer
8:30am​Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
9am ​Low Mass
5:30pm ​Evening Prayer
