Emergency Work in Church - Progress Report

Following a meeting with the Surveyor it has been found that extensive repairs to the ceiling and total redecoration of the church will be necessary. We have been advised that this work together with the erection of extensive scaffolding, redecorating and re-carpeting of the three aisles will extend the temporary closure of the Church until March.  

Therefore until further notice, up to and including 28th February 2016:

· The only Masses will be on Sunday and will be held in the school hall at 9am and 6pm.
· Funerals, baptisms and confessions will at either St. Augustine's Downend or St. Paul's, Yate.
· First Holy Communion Preparation which begins on 17th January will be held in the School Hall after the 9am Mass on Sunday.

Please note that a small repository table and food bank box will be set up each Sunday at the entrance to the school hall.

For more information relating to the temporary closure of Church please take a look at the Management & Finance Committee Minutes of Meeting held on the 30th December.
