300th Anniversary - A Letter from Provincial Fr James Sweeney C.P. to Friends in the Passionist Family
Current Covid-19 Guidance in Scotland for Glasgow is LEVEL (Tier) 4 from 20th November for 3 weeks, please click for latest information from Scottish Government
People can't travel from one local authority to another for Mass/Worship - except for a funeral.
SAINT MUNGO’S AND LEVEL 4
With the announcement today that Glasgow City is among those areas moving on to Level 4, meaning that public worship will be restricted to 20 participants, including volunteers, we feel that we have no choice but to cancel all Masses in St. Mungo’s this weekend and put a new system in place as from Monday 23rd November, and for the following 3 weeks. The new and increased rota of Church Masses will be as follows:
Monday @ 6pm; Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday @ 10am.
Saturday (Vigil) @ 6pm; Sunday @ 10am; 12 noon & 7pm.
Masses will be restricted to 20 participants, including volunteers, therefore:
People will only be able to book for one Mass from Monday to Sunday.
People will also only be able to book for a Sunday Mass every two weeks.
Father Frank will be dealing with bookings personally and people must be prepared to be told that the Mass they are trying to book for may have already reached it’s 20 maximum, as this is likely to happen very quickly, and before it can be reflected on the website.
People are asked not to turn up to any Mass without having booked beforehand as they will almost inevitably not be able to attend.
Church opening for Prayer, Adoration and Reconciliation will remain the same as at present, but people will be restricted to 15 minutes in the Church for Prayer and Adoration and are asked to comply with this, and to cooperate with the stewards if the numbers in the church exceed 20 at any given time.
Streamed Masses from the Passionist House in Bishopbriggs will remain unchanged.
