Church Open for Private Prayer
22nd August: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm BST
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until 26th September 2020
Procedures to follow
There are a number of procedures which have to be followed in order to keep everyone safe. Obviously this will involve observing the protocols on proper social distance, but will also involve some restrictions which are specific to the context of the church. Please note the following:
- Use the hand sanitiser provided as you enter and leave the church;
- Follow the one way system;
- Feel free to wear a face mask;
- Do not touch any statues or altars;
- The majority of the chairs have been removed, so you may need to queue during busy periods.
We are beginning to plan for the resumption of the public celebration of Holy Mass, but there can be no communal or group prayers in the church at the moment. Please note that we are not yet allowed to hear confessions.
If you are displaying any cold or flu symptoms, please do not enter the church building. We would also advise those most vulnerable to refrain from visiting the church.
There are no toilet facilities available.
Spiritual resources for visiting the Blessed SAcrament
A range of resources are available online for visits to the Blessed Sacrament. The Catholic Truth Society have a number of books on sale that you might find useful, including this companion to Eucharistic Adoration which contains prayers, readings, and devotional images.
