With the lifting of all mandatory Covid restrictions we can move forward in our churches. The NHS QR phone scanning posters can be removed. We no longer need to keep a record of those who attend Mass on Sundays as well as weekdays. Face coverings in church are optional as is hand sanitising. A big Thank You to all those who have volunteered as stewards in the last two years who have helped to keep us safe.
