Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Millport: Completed Risk Assessment Form, 15.07.20

In compliance with the instructions of both the Government and the Diocese, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour’s Parish has now completed and submitted its Risk Assessment Form. I am pleased to announce that it has been approved by our Diocesan Coordinator for the Re-Opening of Churches, Fr. Stephen McGrattan.

I am publishing it here to give parishioners an idea of the work that has been involved in recent weeks to prepare for re-opening. Once again, I think we can be extremely grateful to the individual and collective efforts made by our Parish Coordination Team for this matter.

I am also publishing it to offer solid reassurance to all who intend to come to Mass in Our Lady of Perpetual Succour’s in the coming weeks that the environment is as safe as it can possibly be in terms of our human endeavours.

Fr. Peter
