The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales issued guidance to parishes on the COVID-19 outbreak recently and please do read their guidance by following the link.
At St. Joseph’s the following measures have been taken.
The sacred host should only be received in the hand and not on the tongue.
The sacred-blood will not be given at Holy Mass.
Holy water fonts have been emptied.
Shaking hands as an expression of the sign of peace has been suspended for the time being. A respectful bow is an alternative for the duration.
We pray for the well being of all the St. Joseph’s family and we will update you on any additional or amended guidance as and when we receive it.
May God bless you.
Thank you, so much for your support.
