We are delighted to be able to re-open our churches this weekend (11/12 July) albeit with restricted schedules and very restricted numbers.  Please check the calendar for details of all the Masses for the coming week, and note that we will all be required to wear face covering (covering your nose and mouth) whilst in the building.

We will continue to offer Mass via Zoom from Hornby whenever Mass is celebrated there. You can join in this Mass by clicking the blue ‘join the service’ button. The parish host will be available 30 minutes before the Sunday Mass and 15 minutes before the weekday Masses to welcome you and give you access.
