RECENT CHANGES FOLLOWING 19th JULY ADVICE

The obligation to go to Mass on Sunday remains suspended and Masses are still subject to guidelines.

For Track and Trace purposes we would prefer everyone to book a seat before they come to a Sunday Mass . Book either, via Eventbrite or the booking phone 07415000566 (for those who do not use the internet). If you come to Mass without a reservation, we may not be able to accommodate you at certain times.

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

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. Currently, transmission in BANES is high, relative to the national average. Therefore

  • Face coverings are strongly recommended to be worn by those in church.
  • 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.

NHS Covid-19 Test and Trace App. If you have a Smartphone and are using the App, please scan the QR code at the entrance.

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 the church. The Sacristy door is near the end of the building on the right.

Please do not park in the front of the church. We are using the emergency door as an exit.

We are grateful for the work of all our Stewards. The age restriction for stewards no longer applies and if you would like to volunteer, please email the parish office at bath.stmary@cliftondiocese.com

When registering by PHONE or EVENTBRITE we ask for your email and /or phone number, in case we need to contact you at short notice. By providing this you are agreeing that we may contact you by phone or email regarding your booking and any future changes to our booking process.

  • Sunday 10.30 am Mass - Saturday at 6.30 pm

To help ensure St Mary’s Church stays COVID secure and safe for everyone: please read and follow 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, and because we have been unable to take the Sunday collection since March 2020.

Any donation is welcome, no matter the size, or how often. Only the donations secretary will see this information.

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.

The Impact of Covid-19 on Parish Income

Our income maintains the parish and sustains our outreach work.

Unfortunately, our income is down by 30%. Major factors include

  • No Sunday Mass collections since March 2020.
  • Other income that supports the parish is reduced or gone. (e.g. Hire income from Parish Centre and weekday car park permits not being renewed.)

Our expenditure has increased due to

  • The usual bills still coming in
  • New costs e.g. PPE, hand sanitiser, signage, metre sticks etc.
  • Streaming of Masses (setup and ongoing costs). Thank you for donations to enable this.

Thank you if you support our parish with a regular donation. It is much appreciated. We do understand that many people are facing greater financial challenges than before.

If you are able to make an occasional contribution, we are immensely grateful. Including, if you are in a position to begin, or increase, a regular contribution.

For more information please go to St Mary's website and select "church giving " https://www.stmarysbath.org.uk/parish-life

If you are a taxpayer, please consider using Gift Aid to increase the value of your gift by 25% at no cost to you. Contact the Gift Aid secretary Michael at GA.bath.stmary@cliftondiocese.com
