Corona virus update
Following the relaxation of Government rules it is now possible for churches to open for private prayer from Monday 15 June. We are delighted to say we are hoping to open the doors of St Vincent’s for restricted times from Wednesday 17 June, dependent on approval from the Diocese of our plan to fulfill safety regulations. Please visit the latest bulletin for more details of times.
The following documents detail safety requirements and procedures. We especially encourage volunteers to familiarise themselves with all documents. Visitors are asked to especially read ‘Risk Assessment’ and ‘General Guidance’.

Confirmation Group 2020
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In the light of the current Government public health guidance regarding the Coronavirus, Fr Jonathan, myself and the team of Catechists have decided that it is wisest to suspend this years Confirmation Programme until further notice. As a cohort of 72 candidates and a team of 18 catechists, our gatherings would very much be contrary to current policy to maintain social distancing.
This is a great disappointment for all concerned, and as soon as we can resume we will contact you with revised dates for all the sessions and associated events and services.
Therefore, Thursday evenings session (19/03/20) will not go ahead. Stations of the Cross will not be led by the Confirmation candidates on Friday (20/03/20) and the Reconciliation service next Tuesday (24/03/20) is also postponed as are all subsequent elements of the Confirmation Programme.
We are very sorry to have Postpone the programme, but we hope that the candidates and their families will understand the reasons. We do however look forward to being able to continue later in the year.
In the meantime, stay healthy and encourage the candidates to keep the sick, the isolated and those suffering from the virus very much in their prayers.
Thank you for Your understanding.
Fr Jonathan & Adrian Lewis
