GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS NOTICE :
St Gerard’s, as part of the Diocese of Down & Connor, operates in accordance with the Diocesan Privacy Notice—
a copy is displayed on the Notice Board and on the website..
St Gerard’s has a webcam therefore, “Live Streams” all Church Services. This is a convenience for those parishioners, and others, who cannot attend due to age, disability or distance. In order to protect the privacy of all attending the Church, Live Streaming only effects the first 4 rows so the rest of the Church is effectively a “No Video” zone.
Communion will be distributed from the front as usual and then from the middle of Church.
Consent forms will be issued to the following :
1 Altar Servers—forms will be signed by parent/guardian if under 13
2 Ministers of the Eucharist
4 For Baptisms, Weddings and funerals.
Tea and Coffee:
This has been a very successful initiative as it has afforded the opportunity to gather informally as a community for a cuppa and a chat after each mass.
The 9:30am session is back up and running and we would very much like to re-start the teas and coffees after the 11:30am mass as well.
If you are available and willing to volunteer to help with the teas and coffees
please contact Stephen on 07875 412380.
