Re-Opening of St. Patrick's for Public Mass:
As Parishioners will be aware, St. Patrick's re-opened today (Monday 29th June) for Public Mass.
It is important that we ALL work together to try and maintain as safe an environment as possible.
With that in mind, PLEASE NOTE:
The maximum number of people allowing for social distancing who can attend Mass is 100, once this number has been reached the doors will be closed and a sign will indicate that the church has reached its capacity. We hope we would not have to exclude anyone, but please be aware that in the interests of everyone's safety, it may be necessary to close the church once this capacity is reached.
PLEASE OBSERVE the social distancing measures put in place - this is currently 2 metres.
Masks should be worn in the church - this should help us contain the virus. The priests will advise on receiving the Blessed Sacrament during Mass.
REMEMBER TO SANITISE ON ENTERING AND LEAVING THE CHURCH!
If you have an underlying health condition, have been shielding, are pregnant or are uncomfortable attending Mass in the current climate, please remember the Sunday obligation to attend has been suspended during the current pandemic - it is ESSENTIAL that you do what is best for you and those around you at this time. Mass is available via churchmedia.tv or on Facebook at Downpatrick Parish. Please remember that during the current pandemic, you can attend Mass on any day of the week.
