St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Pudsey, West Yorkshire LS28 7AZ
Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, activities in our parish are limited. Our parish hall is closed & there are no meetings or social events, but some Masses in our church are open to the public, subject to restrictions on numbers attending & the requirement of stewarding and cleaning after each use. We are restricted to using just 16 benches in our church, with individuals & family groups having to practice safe distancing from all others at all times. You must now by law wear a face covering whenever you are in a place of worship, unless you are exempted. Any family groups who come to our church cannot number more than six people, nor can groups of more than six people mingle before or after Mass.
Our bishop, Rt Rev Marcus Stock, has issued a “Frequently Asked Questions” guide of the most recent measures announced on the 14th October, which you can read here.
Please – we need volunteers to help us to keep our church open for Mass – please see here for information.
Masses on Sunday at 9.30am & 11.00am and on Saturdays at 12 noon are open to the public, but you must book beforehand either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 0113 257 0803 (preferably on Mondays & Fridays 9am to 1pm, leaving a message if necessary). Everyone who attends must leave their name and telephone number or email address to comply with the NHS Test & Trace scheme.
Masses this week on Tuesday (27th October) at 7.00pm & Friday (30th October) at 9.30am are also open to the public, though you do not need to book in order to attend. Please write your name and phone number on a piece of paper and bring it with you to hand to the steward when you enter the church porch in order to comply with the NHS Test & Trace scheme.
