For the safety of all who attend Mass, the government has advised that a contact phone number be kept for everyone who comes to Mass, for a period of 21 days. That information will be destroyed after 21 days. It will be made available to NHS Track and Trace if they contact the parish to request that information. It will only be made available to any third party if that is required by law.
If you come to Mass in a group or as a family only one contact number will be needed. The legal basis on which the parish will hold this information is your consent. If you do not wish to provide your phone number for these purposes, you will still be able to attend Mass. The parish is committed to ensuring that information we hold about you is properly and securely held in accordance with the law. You can find out more from our Privacy Notice, which is at https://www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk/privacy-policy
This parish is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, registered charity number 234216.
To facilitate this, we will provide contact slips as you leave the church from today, in order to begin the process next week. Your contact details will be required for every Mass you attend. If a family attend, one contact form is sufficient. (You may, of course, bring your own piece of paper and details from home!) A basket will be provided for the completed slips for each Mass and these will be kept securely for 21 days in case NHS Track and Trace require details. After 21 days the slips will be destroyed.
