Church re-opening – A further health and safety risk assessment is to take place this week for both Bishop Thornton and Pateley Bridge churches, and next week-end we should be able to provide details of an opening date and a maximum number allowed in church. More volunteers are still needed to be ushers and cleaners at Mass when we reopen and having sufficient of these is a requirement for re-opening. Please call Father Maurice on 01423 711277 or email him at to register your availability for these tasks.

Following the meeting with the H&S officer we will have a meeting with prospective volunteers to discuss and agree a way forward. See the parish website for further information.
