Booking/Registration for Mass
Mass times for Stanford Le Hope
1. Your booking of
Mass must be at least two weeks in advance of the date you wish to attend Mass.
EXAMPLE: If you wish to attend a Mass on Sunday 26th July
you must register by the end of Friday 10th July (that is 2 weeks before the
weekend Mass). Strictly no late
registrations will be entertained.
You will be informed a week before your intended Mass
whether you have been successful/unsuccessful with your registration.
2. If you know of any
parishioners without smart phones, computer or Wi-Fi connection please contact
them and if they wish to attend a particular Mass please assist them in registering
their date and time for the Mass but separately to your own registration. Remember it must be as per the registration format below.
3. For the time being
we suggest that you register for Mass fortnightly. This is to allow other parishioners to have a
chance to attend a particular Mass; as Masses will be limited to 40 people per Mass in Stanford-le-Hope.
4. An attendance check-in list will be generated for each Mass and your
attendance will be confirmed, you (and your family) will be ushered to an
allocated seating space. Please come at
least 20 minutes before Mass begins for this registration to take place. Check in closes 5 minutes before Mass begins. Late comers will not be allowed to attend the
Mass for which you have registered. We
are sorry that we have to follow these very strict guidelines as we resume the
celebration of Public Masses.
5. It is important to reaffirm that the obligation to attend
Sunday Mass remains suspended. Please be
aware there will be a limited number of people who can attend any particular
Mass in our Churches (see No. 4 above).
We need to reflect very carefully on how and when we might be able to
attend Mass. We cannot and must not
return immediately to our customary practices (hence arriving 20 minutes before
the start of Mass). Face coverings/masks are not compulsory, however, we recommend that you wear them in the Church.
6. We ask every parishioner to think carefully about how and
when they will return to Mass, given that there is no Sunday obligation. We ask you to consider attending Mass on a
weekday which will be limited to a maximum of 20 people only.(there is no need to register for weekday Masses). This will ease the pressure of numbers for
Sunday celebrations and allow a gradual return to the Eucharist for more
7. If you or any of your family have any Covid-19 symptoms
please remain at home and do not attend the Public Masses. If you or your family members show any
Covid-19 symptoms after attending a Mass you MUST immediately inform Fr.
Anthony and the Parish office.
8. If you wish to cancel the Mass which you have registered
for, please inform us immediately.
Please remember that bookings for Mass are “one event”
bookings and that you should not rebook for 2 weeks
