Funeral Restrictions Update

Published on October 20, 2020
We have two funerals booked in this week and we have confirmed that both can have a maximum attendance of 25 mourners. I now understand that the Government have decided to maintain funeral attendance at 25 during the level 5 lockdown. I welcome this decision.
Even maintaining the number of mourners at 25 places great strain on a family at an incredibly difficult time; I deeply appreciate this. We must remember that these maximum numbers are given to all parishes as part of the Government framework and all parishes are bound to adhere to them. No exceptions can be made.
Please keep those who are mourning in your prayers.
Thank you as always for your support
