Please sanitize your hands thoroughly before coming to church, on entry to the church (and when moving into the hall).
From 8 August the wearing of face coverings in places of worship becomes a legal requirement (as it is in shops and supermarkets)
There is no health risk in receiving Holy Communion as the priest will have followed current advice on safe celebration of the Eucharist. In order to receive Holy Communion, the correct way to put a face mask on or take it off (so as to avoid touching the inside or outside of the mask) is to handle only the straps. (If you wish to follow official advice to sanitize your hands again at that point, please bring your own sanitizer.)
St. Edmunds is now open for public worship. Service times are as follows:
11 AM Every Sunday – Mass
Shielding has ended, so everyone should now be returning to church to receive Holy Communion. However, if you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19, are self-isolating, or have been advised by a medical professional to do so, you should remain at home.
