If your mouth and nose are NOT covered then you are NOT wearing your mask correctly. Wearing a mask in church is a legal requirement - unless you have a medical exemption (which has to be checked).

Am I putting OTHERS and MYSELF at risk of catching COVID by not wearing my facemask properly?

Please do your social duty and cover your mouth and nose whilst in church. If you do not do this you will be asked to leave.


Hallam Diocese normally welcomes a new cohort for the Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS) each September. This course, normally taken over two years, has long been a key part of adult faith formation in the diocese, with hundreds of teachers, catechists, and lay faithful over the years studying for the full certificate, or simply attending some of the classes.

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 this year, the 2020-21 CCRS start date is deferred until January 2021. This allows us to assess the interest in the course for the coming year now that schools and churches are open to some degree. We hope to be able to teach in-person, with all necessary precautions, at the Hallam Pastoral Centre, but the Adult Formation team is also preparing to teach some material online should that become necessary.

An information leaflet on the course is attached, and if you would like to register for January, please contact

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink" ... In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." {NJB Matthew 25:35,40}

Food Banks need your support - all supermarkets have containers set aside for us to follow the Lord's commands to help others in their time of need.
