for Mass or private prayer.  
1. On arrival in church, you must sanitise your hands (please note there  
is no holy water). 
2. Please sit only in spaces marked with a green dot, those in household  
bubbles may sit together in a pew but that means no one else can sit in that pew 
3. Once Mass or private prayer is finished, you are encouraged to leave church promptly  
following the one-way system 
4. If you wish to light a candle, please light one already in a stand using  
a candle already lit, this prevents the spread of germs
