Reserve your seat

Updated Information from 19th July 2021

Following the recent lifting of restrictions both our churches will now operate a procedure where one side of the church will continue to offer the existing social distancing arrangements, while the other will allow people to occupy a place which is in close proximity to others.

If you require a place that is in the socially distanced section, please reserve your place in the usual way, by contacting Fr George.

In both sides of the church, everyone has to wear face coverings, and sanitize hands when entering church.

Plan your visit

If you wish to attend Mass at either Our Lady and St Chad and St Mary’s and wish to sit in the socially distanced section of the church, booking your seat in advance is essential. 

Book ahead

To book your place, please email or phone Father George with the following information

  • Number of people attending, with both your name and their names
  • Dates and time you would like to attend
  • Whether you plan to attend St Chad’s or St Mary’s
  • Contact phone number, in accordance with test and trace guidance

Book by email george@ampleforth.org.uk or phone 01439 766712 (leave a message if no reply).

Please book no later than 4pm the day before you plan to attend.

If after booking you are unable to attend, please let Father George know so that your place can be given to someone else.

Mass times

Sundays 9.00am |St Mary’s
Sundays 10.30am | Our Lady and St Chad

Extra safety measures

When you arrive at church buildings stewards will meet you at the entrance. You will be asked to sanitise your hands and wear a face covering. The steward will guide you to your place and when mass is over, the steward will guide you to receive Holy Communion as you leave church.

Where to view Mass online

Many of us are still keeping safe by staying at home, so here are just some places where mass can be viewed online.
