But, please note:-
• Our churches that have opened have put in place all the measures needed to ensure the risks of virus transmission are minimised…We remain committed to making sure these systems … meet Government and public health standards.

• With the easing of restrictions on worship with congregations, we tread carefully along the path that lies ahead.

• It is important to reaffirm that, at present, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended.

• A significant number of churches may remain closed as they are unable to meet the requirements for opening for individual prayer. Fulfilling these requirements is a precondition for any church opening after the 4 July,for the celebration of Mass with a congregation.

• Please be aware that there will be a limit on the number of people who can attend Mass in our churches. This will be determined locally ….

• We therefore need to reflect carefully on how and when we might be able to attend Mass.

• We cannot return immediately to our customary practices. This next step is not, in any sense, a moment when we are going ‘back to normal.’

• We ask every Catholic to think carefully about how and when they will return to Mass.

• Given there is no Sunday obligation, we ask you to consider the possibility of attending Mass on a weekday. This will ease the pressure of numbers for Sunday celebrations and allow a gradual return to the Eucharist for more people.

• We … ask parishes, wherever possible, to continue live-streaming Sunday Mass.

• When we return to Mass there will some differences in how the celebration takes place. For the time being, there will be no congregational singing and Mass will be shorter than usual.

• We ask everyone to respect and follow the guidance that will be issued and the instructions in each church.
