DATA PROTECTION With the new law taking effect, the parish (and the diocese) is in a new world. Now, sick people may be prayed for, but not named in the newsletter without the signed permission of each such person. Recently deceased may not be named without the signed permission of the next of kin, (not of the funeral director). Special Ministers of the Eucharist may no longer collect their rotas from the church porch but must find them in the sacristy, and give signed permission for any personal particulars apart from their names to be made available from the rotas to other Ministers. The names and details of the sick being visited may not be made public. We must bear with one another as these changes take place.
Forms concerning sick people are in the sacristy.
Forms concerning new altar servers are in the sacristy.
