St. Roch's Garngad

IMPORTANT UPDATE 4th January 2021

Dear All,
 
As we all are aware, the Government has imposed new restrictions:
 
 
 
The key points for us are:
  • From Friday churches must close. There must be no public Masses, devotions, etc., and churches must not be left open for private prayer. 
  • Funerals and weddings can still go ahead in church. Only 20 may be at a funeral and only 5 at a wedding (i.e. the priest, couple, and two witnesses). 
  • Sick calls to hospitals and care homes will depend on the institution; sick calls to private homes can go ahead in danger of death with all appropriate precautions in place.
  • Confessions can still be heard outdoors, since two people from two households are still allowed to meet outside.  
These restrictions are due to last at least until the end of January (and may be extended).
 
This means for us in the Parish of St. Roch’s, Masses will be streamed via Facebook: (http://www.facebook.com/strochsparish) until further notice.
 
Public Worship 
The Government have sent the following to faith groups this evening:
 
Q. Can we continue with congregations until Friday?
 
A: It is now a legal requirement to stay at home unless it is essential. The Stay at Home guidance is now in regulations and came into force at 0001hrs today and there is no exemption to attend a place of worship between now and Friday. This effectively means that Places of Worship should be closed for both congregational worship and individual prayer with immediate effect. Additionally given the current position in relation to the pandemic the Scottish Government would also discourage more than 5 (or 6, if an interpreter is required) from attending a marriage in a level 4 area before Friday. All associated guidance is being amended now to reflect what will be the regulatory position from Friday.  We apologise for the degree of inconsistency in messaging from government but hope that this clears this anomaly up.
 
Funerals 
For funerals we should only have the 20 in the church and not broadcast to halls, etc.
