14th March 2020:

“You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.”

Cardinal Vincent Nichols announced Wednesday 18th March that, in view of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are not to gather in our Churches for public acts of worship from now on.

The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays is removed because of this pandemic.

Each Sunday, a Mass recorded in St Mary’s Church will be available on YouTube and on the St Mary’s Website.

Requiem Masses will be celebrated, 12 noon, but only with close family in attendance.

All this stems from the need to avoid crowds, and to promote social distancing.

DON’T FORGET that clocks go forward on Sunday 29th March at 01.00am!!

Helping the self-isolated: Take and hand out to self-isolating people the yellow flyers inviting them to phone St. Mary’s for help giving their name, address and phone number. Emilie Moynihan is operating a Whatsapp group of 10 parishioners who have offered themselves for shopping, prescription collecting, or just for a friendly chat on the phone. She will allocate a ‘helper’ to contact the self-isolated person. Also see “Help your friends and neighbours” below.
