FACILITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AT CHURCH  

Parking:-               Two dedicated parking spaces are reserved just a few metres from the main entrance. 

Access to the Church:-               There are no steps to negotiate, just a gentle ramp.

Deaf Loop System:-             There is one installed. If it starts to malfunction in any way, please inform the Priest immediately.

Large-Print Newsletters:-             These are printed in Times New Roman 18pt, and can be obtained from the table on the left-hand side of the porch as you enter.  

Holy Communion:-               if you would find it easier for Holy Communion to be brought to your place in church, before Mass starts please ask one of the Welcomers to let the Priest know.

There are one or two people at most of our Masses who find this helpful.

Disabled Toilet:-               The toilet in the main porch is equipped for use by those in wheelchairs.

Service Animals:-              Service animals are welcome to accompany persons needing assistance in the church. Please advise Fr. Pat or the church office beforehand if you will be attending church with a service animal.
