Foxrock Parish Arrangements:
We are very conscious that this is a stressful time for parishioners and that all are longing for the time when we will be able to gather freely again in our Parish Faith Family. We deeply appreciate your tolerance and patience as we try to work with such restrictive conditions and we hope to see as many of you as possible at Mass over the coming weeks.
In compliance with Government, public health and Archbishop Martin’s guidance and in the interest of reducing risk to health and life, we will have to work together to ensure that up to fifty parishioners may attend Mass on weekdays and at weekends as safely as possible. That will take effect from Thursday 3 December.
It will mean that, when we come to the Church, we will continue to observe the public health protocols in using hand sanitiser, keeping the social distance of two meters and using the recommended cough and sneeze etiquette. This time, we note that face masks (not visors) are obligatory.
The Church will be open twenty minutes before each Mass and there will be a one way system where we will come in by the main door and exit by the side doors. We will not be able to gather socially either within or outside the Church.
Booking to attend Masses both on weekdays and weekends is necessary for contact traceability and will be taken by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. The email booking facility will be open from 1 December. Confirmation of bookings for up to fifty people will issue by return email. You will need to have your booking confirmed and, if at all possible, we ask you to bring your confirmation email with you when you come to Mass.
Stewards will be on hand to assist parishioners.
