It’s been a real joy for us to welcome members of our congregation back to the public celebration of Holy Mass. But as things become more routine, it’s important that we continue to observe the precautions and systems that have been put in place. Please bear in mind the following when coming to Mass at Blackfriars.

Before Mass – Book a place

However, now that the summer is beginning to draw to a close, and Masses are becoming busier, we ask you to continue to use the booking system so as to ensure that you will have a place at Mass. You can book a place via Eventbrite.

At Mass

Bookings can only be honoured until 6pm, so please arrive in good time for Mass. The church is opened about 10 or 15 minutes before each Mass.
