Update on Covid 19 Omicron Variant


As we are all aware, the new Omicron variant is spreading at an alarming rate. In order for everyone to feel safe when coming to mass, the Bishops Conference of England and Wales have asked us to respect the following guidelines:

  • Please use the hand sanitizer that is available at the back of the Church when you enter and leave the Church.

  • Please wear a mask or face covering when inside the church.
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 please stay at home.

  • QR code is displayed as you come in the Church. Please check in using the NHS Covid-19 app. 


Christmas is a very special time of the year, and the Christmas masses are usually busy.

It is really important that we all do our utmost to make sure that everybody in St Teresa’s can worship safely. It would be really helpful if as many of us as possible could take a lateral flow test (available free from the NHS) before coming to the Christmas masses.

Of course, this is completely voluntary. We need to do all we can to protect ourselves and others and ensure that we can enjoy a really lovely Christmas with our families and friends.

I thank you all most sincerely for your cooperation.
