                                 &   10.00 am  

Weekday Masses: Tuesday and Thursday at 10.00 am

At this time, it is still encouraged that you continue to register to attend Mass on Saturday evening or Sunday morning. 

Please try to register before 12 noon on FRIDAY by texting or leaving a voice message at the number below.

0 7 9 3 5  5 2 6 6 5 5

This 'phone will be checked for messages/texts on Fridays. It wont be answered by anyone, so you must leave a message or text. 

If your registration is successful there will be no reply.

NB If you register for places at a Mass, and for any reason cannot come, it is important that you let me know so that the places can be made available for others.  

Please pass this information on to parishioners who may not see this website

A reminder that there is no Sunday/Holyday obligation at this time.

All Masses take place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel 

If leaving a voice message, please leave your name, the number of people in your family/support bubble and the date and time of the Mass you wish to attend, and include your phone number if it is not normally displayed when calling. 

If you are sending a text message, please send only your name and the names of others in your family or ’bubble', along with the date and time of the Mass you wish to attend 

for example: Jenny Tory 32/13/21  10 am

The church will be opened 30 minutes before Mass. 

All are asked to observe social distancing when arriving and departing and to use the ‘one way’ route when leaving.

You can register for others outside your family / bubble who don’t have access to this web page or a text facility, but please do so in a separate message.

The obligation to attend Mass on Sunday/Holydays is still suspended.

FACE COVERINGS ARE  STILL encourged inside the church. 

Please, do NOT attend church if you have COVID-19 symptoms 

Many thanks to our volunteer stewards and cleaners.


Phone numbers and names will be kept securely for track and trace purposes for 21 days and then deleted.


A note about our church cleaning regime 

N.B. The obligation to attend Sunday Mass is still suspended by the bishop.

Don’t be anxious if you are a 'shielder' or feel you would rather not come to church at this time.

There will be some weekday Masses (usually on Tuesday and Thursday at 10.00 am and at other times as announced). These Masses tend to be less 'busy’ and  perhaps are an option for those who can come to church on weekdays and help ease the pressure on Sundays.  

Masses are still being streamed online from various churches.

Sadly, I can't see our chapel of ease,  St Thomas of Canterbury Church,  reopening until we return to something like ’normal'. Having no side aisles, there isn’t a way to establish  a ‘one-way’ system there, and with  social distancing we would be able to admit very few people into the building. 
For the time being, we will use the larger Parish Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to accommodate as many parishioners as possible 
from both communities.
