Welcome to our website

St Cuthbert’s:

This week we welcome St Cuthbert’s to our cluster of parishes. I look forward to our three churches working more closely together.

Covid Restrictions:

The Bishop, after consultation with his council, has asked that Covid restrictions remain in place, with a relaxation in some areas. Please do continue to wear your mask in church. Please do not come to Mass if you have any symptoms on Covid. Hand sanitizer is available at the back of church. Please try to maintain social distancing inside church, with people who you do not mix with outside of church. But we will be moving to a more - personal responsibility - approach. Welcomers will not show you to seats, the offertory and collection will be restored, and all are encouraged to sing with masks on. Fr Marc will continue to take a lateral flow test one hour before each Mass.
