GUIDANCE IN THE LIGHT OF THE 4 STEP ROAD MAP


STEP 1: March 8th onwards:

Funerals: Rules around funerals do not change.

Weddings: Weddings can proceed with 6 attendees and are no longer limited to exceptional circumstances.

Baptisms: No change.

There should not be any Baptisms in this step which also includes Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday.


STEP 2: No earlier than 12th April:

Step 2 will therefore take place no earlier than 12 April, subject to an assessment of the data against the four tests. If Step 2 is delayed, subsequent steps will need to be pushed back in order to maintain the necessary five week period to assess the impact of each step and provide notice.

Funerals: No change

Weddings: These can proceed with up to 15 people present. A reception can also take place with the same restrictions.

Baptisms: Single household baptisms can take place with parents and siblings only. Godparents by proxy.


STEP 3: No earlier than May 17th:

Funerals: No change in church numbers – but receptions can take place.

Weddings: These can proceed with up to 30 people present. A reception can also take place with the same restrictions.

Baptisms: These can proceed with up to 30 people present in Church. A reception can also take place with restrictions. An indoor reception at home is subject to the 2 households rule or rule of 6. Outdoors up to 30 people.

The Government will advise on social distancing regulations at this step – so until we hear further the capacity of our churches will remain limited by the need for social distancing.


STEP 4: No earlier than 21st June:

Funerals: All limits removed.

Weddings: All limits removed

Baptisms: All limits removed.

1st Communions: “Traditional” Communion Masses can take place – but we may be still limited by social distancing rules that are as yet unknown.

Communion to the Sick: This can resume but only one household at a time, to avoid possible infection transmission.

Further advice will be given concerning the limits of the capacity of our buildings.

Singing: No advice has been given about a change in regulations already made.
