Notes regarding the opening of the church from

week beginning Monday 20th July.

The need for stewarding of all Masses and periods of private prayer means that for this week given the limited number of stewards I shall try a week of morning Masses at 9.30am and propose Saturday morning for confessions. The periods for private prayer on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays will be cancelled this week but may be re-established in the coming weeks.

Again the system of online bookings will be the main way to make sure we have a record of who comes to Mass as the government does require us to keep information for contact tracing.. The booking site is Evenbrite which can be accessed by googling Evenbrite and clicking on the site and following directions (I know some have had difficulty especially because the site times out the application. I have addressed this problem by changing the time to book to !0 minutes.)

For those with a smart phone it is easier to download the Eventbrite app and just search St John the Baptist Port Glasgow. The Masses will come up click the one you want to book and follow the instructions and you will be sent a ticket by email that you can print and bring with you. I will have a list so don’t worry about not having a printed ticket.

I have put up the 6 weekdays this week and will put up three weeks ahead for the Vigil and Sunday Masses. I will revert to the 6pm vigil and 9.30 and 11 on Sunday should the two priests no longer need to live stream a Mass for St Johns.
