St Mary’s will remain open during the week whenever possible, for people to visit and pray should they so wish. If other people are there, please remember the Social Space rule, stay at least two metres apart, and cover the face when sneezing or coughing. Sorry, we probably will not have hand cleansing gel available/
During this period of Isolation and Screening, please be careful and don’t disregard the advice being given, and hopefully we will all come through this period unscathed, and things will get back to normal in a few weeks time!
God Bless you all.
