Welcome to St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic Church, a small and welcoming parish in the village of Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex, part of the Diocese of Brentwood.
As you know from Monday 19th July 2021 many of the legal restrictions around measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 were lifted in England. This doesn’t mean that coronavirus has gone away. We will have to learn to live with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future, managing the risk for ourselves and others.
The guidance issued by the Bishops’ Conference, whilst encouraging, it enables us to move forward with a cautious approach, allowing us to take local infection rates etc into consideration when keeping/removing certain restrictions.
At present it is the intention of the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, to reintroduce the Obligation to be at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation from the 1st Sunday of Advent (28th November 2021), until that time, it remains suspended.
We shall look to slowly reintroduce those things that have been suspended due to COVID over the next few months and will of course communicate these with you. We will continue to follow the guidance issued and take local information into consideration to keep everybody as safe as we can.
God bless you all
