Christmas Crib Collection

We support a number of Charities during the year. This year’s Fair can not take place for obvious reasons – so there will be a “CRIB COLLECTION” for Derien House, Frances House and The Mother and Baby Unit. You can donate in the donation basket at the crib in Church or Online on our website….

What to expect at Church…

Firstly I would like to point out two important facts:

  1. There is no obligation at this moment for you to attend mass. We will let you know when this changes.
  2. Here at St Vincent’s, we will continue our Live Stream – so no one will be left out.

Secondly, things will be different when you return:

  1. There will be stewards who will help us maintain social distancing.
  2. We can have a maximum of 42 people in Church at any one time.
  3. You use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the Church.
  4. There is a one-way system.
  5. Baskets for your collection will be at the entrance and the exit.
  6. You will need to wear a face covering.
  7. Communion will be at the end of mass and you will be asked to leave straight after receiving the Host.
  8. Even though you might want to… Please don’t gather outside Church after mass…

Why not pop into Church…?

Living a life of faith today is a challenge. We would like to welcome you to share in our journey of putting our faith into action. This website is for that purpose. Whether you are a member of the community wanting to inform your self of times and events, or someone looking to find something you need at this time.
