Due to Covid the following guidance is in place:

- there is no booking system in place

- stewards will be there to guide people on where they can sit

- wearing of masks is mandatory

- there will be hand sanitisers at the entrance and exit

- allow a bit of extra time to ensure we have everyone in place before the start of          
   Mass, particularly in Haddenham as we will be live streaming.

- observe social distancing (we are trying to have a 2m separation in the Church)

- if you are feeling unwell please do not attend 

- if you are shielding due to any condition please do not attend

- if you have a positive Covid test, after attending a service, please contact the church.

The capacity is greater in Our Lady of Light, Long Crendon compared to Haddenham, so if you are able to go to Long Crendon we would encourage you to do so.

Volunteers
Request for more volunteers to be stewards for the Masses in Haddenham. Sign and lead people into Mass, indicate when to go for communion and sanitise the  benches after Mass.

Important New Information
Please be aware and observe the rules concerning hygiene and safety when you come to Mass.

1. From the 8th August everyone must wear a face mask or covering in Church unless you are exempt for some reason. Government guidelines will let you know who are exempt.

2. You should sanitise your hands on the way in and on the way out of Church. 

3. You should receive Holy Communion standing up in the hand with no words spoken and follow the guidance of the stewards.

4. Please do not leave anything in the Church, books, papers, glasses, gloves, devotional objects, because of the rules surrounding the virus epidemic we are supposed to throw them away not keep them.

NEW IMPORTANT INFORMATION 
Due to the new government regulations forbidding the gathering of more than 6 people inside or outside (this does NOT apply to Church services, Mass etc, these carry on as they are) however, after Mass people do gather in the car parks occasionally to talk, so I propose the following to avoid any trouble from neighbours, passers by or government officials.

1) In Haddenham 
Please use the patio garden to the side of the Church for groups of up to 6 people maximum to talk. I will also open the Rosary Room likewise 6 people max can have a chat in there leaving the car park at the back of the Church available for any other group of up to 6 to talk.

2) In Long Crendon
The Parish Hall will be available for a group of up to 6 and the large garden with the grotto of Our Lady is also available.
