St Michael Sonning Common

St Michael's is open for Masses with a congregation


Before attending Mass it is essential parishioners read the guidance for keeping us all safe by clicking on this link: 'Covid-19 precautions for attending Mass'

To help the authorities with Track & Trace should it be neccesary, we request you bring a piece of paper with your name and contact number to hand in at the church. All names of a family but only one contact number is required. You are not obliged to give this information to attend Mass.

To continue celebrating Mass at St Michael's we need volunteers to act as stewards. If you can help and have no relevant underlying medical conditions please contact deacon Brian: deaconbrian100@gmail.com
