Leaving the Church After Fr Johns Mass on Tuesday
If you are sitting in the church we ask the following:
IF you are sitting to the right hand side of church
Please exit via the front right hand door and move onto Marlborough Road to the entrance of Ford Avenue. (the Hearse will turn into Marlborough from Ford Lane and head up to Seaview Road)
IF you are sitting to the left hand side of Church
Please exit via the front left hand door and move onto Seaview Road. (the Hearse will turn from Marlborough into Seaview past the Presbytery) It will stop briefly outside the church before heading off.
IF you are sitting in the hall
There will be not exit for anyone sitting in the hall via the hall exit door. You will exit via the side door to church and down the stairs into the carpark area. We ask you for form a guard along Ford Lane as the Hearse will head past this.
NOTE: you will NOT be able to exit via the hall doors until the funeral cortege has left the grounds.
If you are not able to move down the step, we ask that you either remain in the hall until the crowd moves on or make your way to the front entrance doors of the church.
We action this to ensure safety of everyone and to allow the procession to happen in a smooth and order fashion for Johns family
There will be ushers to assist, and we ask you to follow their direction.
All are invited to join in a cup of tea being served behind the Marine discovery centre in the school grounds across the road.
