Changes to Mass at St Mary’s As you are now aware, from Thursday 5th November, we are again in lockdown. According to government guidelines, we are not able to hold public Masses until at least 2nd December. This means that the church will be closed and we will no longer be able to attend Mass in person. With regards to this, St Mary’s has implemented the following: Father Terry will continue to say Mass, however, as the church is closed and Masses will not be public, all the Masses will be streamed on www.saintmarys.online . If you are able to access our Just Giving Money Page so you can be part of the offertory collection, I would be very grateful: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charities/StMaryFinchleyEast There will be two changes to the Mass times – there will be no Mass on Saturday at 5 pm and the only Mass on Sunday will be at 10 am. Please see below for the Mass times: Monday 7 pm Tuesday 10 am Wednesday NO MASS Thursday 7 pm Friday 10 am Saturday NO MASS Sunday 10 am PRIVATE PRAYER: There is an opportunity for private prayer to take place at St Mary’s on Sundays from 11 am to 12 noon following the COVID 19 procedures and guidelines. You must wear a mask and have your name and contact details ready on a piece of paper to give to the stewards present. This is necessary for Track and Trace. If you are aware of any parishioners who are not likely to be on e-mail, please pass this and any future communications on to them, if you can, as we will not be posting out any information during this lockdown. Of course, we will put this and future important information up on the notice boards outside the church. Baptisms, Sacrament of Marriage and Funerals. Baptisms are currently suspended. Weddings are currently suspended except in exceptional circumstances. Funerals: Funeral Masses and funeral services may continue to be celebrated with a maximum attendance of 30 people. Being St Mary’s Parish - Staying in touch - Registration & Parish Census: Father Peter says: It is very important that I am able to keep in touch with you. The shepherd needs his flock. Please update your parish details using the parish census sheet and return it via the presbytery letterbox. It is so important that we stay in touch with each other. Notices will also be given via the streamed Masses.
