THANK YOU ALL:
Can I thank you all for the presentations of last weekend. It was a complete surprise and shock to me until a few weeks ago. As I said last Sunday, my years here in St. Joseph’s, Newbury, have been the most fulfilling of my priestly life, and I thank you all for making that so. Thank you all very much and God bless you all.
Fr. Padraig Faughnan.

A reminder of our Covid measures with effect from Sunday 21st November.
All parishioners are asked to sanitise their hands on entry and exit as usual.
The one-way system remains in place. Enter at the main door and exit by the side doors.
Holy Communion will continue to be distributed at the end of Mass. There will only be Communion of one kind, and no Holy Water in the stoups.
Windows will be open – wear an extra layer!
Parishioners are asked to either sign in using the NHS App and QRCode on each pew or to sign in themselves on the sheet at the main door - remembering to keep a distance from other people when signing in.
Please continue to wear face coverings/masks in church. It is the wish of the parishioners that we ask you to do so. If you choose not to wear a mask, please respect those who do and give people the space they need.
The left transept remains reserved for those individuals and couples who would like to remain socially distanced.
All other seating areas are free from restrictions, but if you are sharing a pew please use common sense and leave a metre gap between yourself and your neighbour.
