Please note the new England-wide lockdown and that we are seeing soaring numbers of covid cases in our local area.
The current National Lockdown Guidance states that it is still permitted to attend public worship and Our Lady of the Rosary remains open for public Mass, BUT we ask all our parishioners to look after each other, especially the most vulnerable, by following the strict guidances of distance, hygiene, and face coverings. You MUST NOT come to church if you or any member of your family or support bubble has any covid/cold/flu symptoms, has tested positive, is awaiting test results, or has been asked to self-isolate for any reason.
There is no obligation to attend Mass on Sundays, and if you are especially vulnerable to covid, we ask you to stay home at this time. As you seek to continue your prayer life at home, you can find live-streamed Masses and other resources on our Pray at Home page. Please always check the newsletter for any changes to mass times.

NHS Test and Trace team encourage you to download the NHS COVID-19 app. In line with the law, the Church has its QR code at the entrance to the Church for parishioners to check in as they enter. This will allow you to be notified if you have been near someone suspected of having coronavirus. More information on the App from the NHS is here
