ST MARY’S THETFORD – THE RENEWED IMPACT OF THE CORONAVIRUS
Recent pronouncements by the Government indicate that the national lockdown in England will end ON WEDNESDAY 2ND DECEMBER. However, it is also clear that certain restrictions will remain, which will affect the normal functioning of the church. Therefore, taking these into account, there will be no public celebration of Masses on this Sunday – 1st Sunday of Advent – and the two days that follow. However, is expected that Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday 2nd December, Saturday 5th December (the Vigil Mass at 5.30 pm) and Sunday 6th December – 2nd Sunday of Advent – at 10 am. This scheduling of Mass – Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday – will continue up to the week of Christmastide, where a schedule specific for the season will be used (details to be posted in subsequent editions of the newsletter). ONCE THE PUBLIC CELEBRATION OF MASS RESTARTS AT ST MARY’S AGAIN, THE PRE-LOCKDOWN PROTOCOLS OF LIMITING THE SEATING AVAILABLE (WHICH WILL NECESSITATE BOOKING BY PHONING ROGER HALL ON 01842 761878 BY 6 PM THE NIGHT BEFORE) AND CLEANING WILL BE REINSTATED. ROTAS FOR THOSE INVOLVED IN FACILITATING THE CELEBRATION OF MASS – USHERS, CLEANERS – WILL BE CIRCULATED TO THOSE INVOLVED IN DUE COURSE.
