IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER

St Mary's continues to support the Government's "Track & Trace" initiative. Thank you for booking a place . This significantly speeds up arrival and seating at Sunday Masses

If you have not booked a place at Mass, then, on entering the church please

  • EITHER use the NHS app to scan the QR codes (at the entrance)
  • OR leave a name for each family member over 16 and a contact phone number

If you wish, you can pick up a “Please leave a space” card on entering the church, to place on the seat immediately beside you.

Stewards will assist you on the day. They will act more as welcomers to the church. They will not tell you where to sit, but will help people to sign in, go to communion and leave safely

Please maintain social distance from others who wish it.

  • Face coverings are strongly recommended to be worn by those in church.
  • Children under 11yrs do not need to wear a mask.
  • Please continue to use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving.
  • The Sign of Peace remains suspended
  • Readers will continue to stand at a separate lectern
  • Holy Communion will be under one kind, and Extraordinary ministers will continue to wear a mask.

Altar servers are returning to the altar and the offertory collection is being reinstated, although the baskets will be held by the stewards rather than being passed around.

Toilets remain closed. Please make sure young children & vulnerable adults are aware of this.

Disabled Access: Entry is through the front door unless you are unable to manage stairs. If so, you are welcome to go in and out through the Sacristy. The Sacristy door is at the back of the church; accessed by a footpath from the car park. Turn left onto the footpath behind

We need more Mass stewards to keep up with the number of people coming. And especially for the Christmas Masses. If you are aged 18-70 and are able to help in this way, please get in touch with the Parish Office on bath.stmary@cliftondiocese.com

BOOKING / REGISTRATION PROCESS

BOOKING OPENS when the link is available on the parish website and BOOKING CLOSES 16hrs before Mass.

To help ensure St Mary’s Church stays COVID secure and safe for everyone: please read the guidance included with your booking confirmation email and your ticket.

To book via Eventbrite; click the link that includes the dates you are interested in. You will be asked to select a date. You can then book as usual. To book a second date; clink on the link again and repeat the process.

If Mass is fully booked; please click the "Register" button for your chosen date to join the WAITING LIST. You will be notified automatically if someone cancels.

If you wish, you can make a one-off donation to the Sunday collection. These are voluntary and it is not necessary to donate when you reserve a place at Mass. We do understand that many people are facing greater financial hardship.

Some people already give regularly by standing order. We have added the donation facility for those who prefer to give via the collection, or are visitors. Only the donations secretary will see this information.

If you donate online you do not need to make a donation when the basket is circulated in church.

BOOKING MASS / NO DONATION: On the booking page under "Registration" please enter the number of people you wish to reserve a place at Mass for. Then proceed as normal.

BOOKING MASS / ADDING A DONATION: On the booking page under "Registration" enter the number of people you wish to reserve a place at Mass for. Under "Donation / Mass Offering" enter the amount you would like to give. Follow the instructions for making a payment. Then add the details for each person attending Mass as normal, INCLUDING yourself.

Making a donation generates an "eRegistration" called "Registration1" but this is NOT a booking for Mass. Each reservation for Mass also generates an eRegistration.

E.g. if you are booking for 2 people (including yourself ) and are making a donation. You will see

  • Registration 1 - For the donation.
  • Registration 2 - For your place at Mass.
  • Registration 3 - For your companion's place at Mass

There is more information about the impact of Covid-19 on Parish income at the bottom of this page.
