About this Event

Dear Parishioners and visitors to our Parish Church of St William of York, Forest Hill,

From Saturday 4th July St William of York will be resuming weekday Masses on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:15am and for now weekend Masses will be celebrated on Saturday 6:00pm, Sunday 10:30am and 6:00pm.

During this pandemic our Bishops have issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday and Holy of obligation Masses, and this dispensation remains in place. All who are especially vulnerable or simply uncomfortable attending the Liturgy in the church are encouraged to remain at home and view Mass via our parish livestreaming.

It is my pleasure to welcome you in to our parish church, I thank everybody who has made this possible and ask for your patience and understanding following the guidelines listed below.

Terms and conditions for booking:

• The stewards are there to ensure the safety of all those using the Church so please follow their instructions as closely as possible.

• If you wish to sit together in a household group of 3 or more, please book seats together in a horizontal row.

• Only use your assigned seats (ask stewards if you are unsure).

• Should the Church near or reach capacity, we may have to change or cancel your booking and you will be notified.

• Please try to avoid any unnecessary touching of surfaces.

• Please be aware there are no toilet facilities available.

• Please do not bring any food items.

• Please bring the minimum possible of personal belongings and do not leave anything behind in the Church including rubbish.

• Pushchairs or buggies will not be allowed inside the Church building at this time.

• Given the unavailability of toilets facilities, the strict requirements to stay in our designated seats and the limitations with moving around the Church during Mass it may NOT be advisable to bring very young children to Mass.

• Children must be kept under control whilst inside and outside the Church so as to respect the social distancing at all times.

• Whiles face coverings can be worn for reassurance, masks will not be a requirement. Parishioners should not see their voluntary use as disrespectful to prayer or the sacred space.

• Please arrive in good time as you may have to queue to get into the Church.

• If you need time for private prayer or wish to light candles, the Church will be opened 20 minutes before Mass for the Saturday evening and Sunday Masses, and 15 minutes before the weekday Masses.

• Please note the church will be closed immediately after Mass has ended to enable full cleaning.

Thank you,

Fr. Habte
