5th August – Weddings & Baptisms

Weddings: From the 5th August, the number of those to attend the celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage in a church can increase to 100 people. This is only to happen where the size of the church allows and the following protective measures can be implemented:

·    social distancing guidelines are adhered to

·    the premises can be subdivided into distinct sections (cordoned or marked appropriately) of not more than 50 persons in each section

·    there is a minimum of 4 metres between sections

·    each section has its own entrance and exit route

·    there are separate arrangements for elements of the service involving close contact, for example the distribution of Holy Communion

·    strictly no movement of people between sections before, during or after the service

·    the premises is well-ventilated

Baptisms: Following the recent government announcement, arrangements can be made for the celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism in parishes to take place from Thursday 5th August next limited to immediate family members to include parents, siblings, sponsors and grandparents.  Every effort should be made to keep the number in attendance to less than ten people for individual baptisms.  The guidance further states that celebrations ‘must follow all protective measures and social gatherings afterwards should be avoided’
