An update from Jon Harcourt:
Having carefully followed directives and suggestions for church openings over the past year, and especially leading to the recent lockdown, I am pleased to say that St Edmunds will be re-opening this coming Sunday ( 28th February) for the 11am Mass with Fr John Oakes as Celebrant.
Our last service was on the 10th January, so it will have been 7 Sundays since we have been able to receive the Blessed Sacrament.
The social distancing, masks, hand cleansing policies will be back in place – and the church will probably be safer than supermarkets!
Our thanks go to the priests who have supported us during many good and sometimes difficult times, and we will keep you updated on the news as it happens, especially for services.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, but only if you feel confident enough and are not isolating because of a medical condition.
Be strong – be safe – be sensible.
God be with you,
