Following new guidelines from our Bishop, we are now able to resume our usual Sunday Masses here in our church!
What you need to know:
All who wish to attend must book in advance. This is necessary for two reasons. Firstly, social distancing means we have a maximum safe capacity which we cannot exceed, and secondly, we are asked to keep everyone's names and contact details for a short period in the event that contact-tracing is required. To book, please tell us your name, and the size of your party (for the seating plan) by emailing us on
or call us on 01738 624 075
(Email is our preferred method of contact.)
Please be sure to book your place at Sunday Mass before the close of business on any given Friday afternoon, to avoid disappointment.
All will need to bring a face-covering or mask, which should be worn throughout the Mass.
You will santise your hands as you arrive, with the sanitisers provided.
You will then be shown to your seat by a trained steward.
Communion will be managed by the stewards asking each bench in turn to proceed for communion, so keeping social distancing between households.
The liturgy will be shorter than usual, probably no longer than half an hour. There will be no Gloria or Creed, and no hymn-singing for the time being.
The collection will be taken as you leave the church, rather than during the service.
If you book a place at Mass, and then find you cannot attend, we ask that you please contact us so that your place can be made available to others.
It is important to note that the guidelines state that we should not open the toilets for use at this stage.
For those still unable to attend Mass for any reason, it is worth noting that the Sunday obligation is still officialy suspended, so there is no need to worry if you cannot make it to Mass at present.
Sunday Mass will still be celebrated online by our Redemptorist confrere Fr Denis McBride CSsR and can be accessed via
With every blessing,
The Kinnoull Community.
