I hope you will be able to join the parish for one of the Christmas Masses (6pm Christmas Eve, 8pm Christmas Eve and 10.30am Christmas Day) either in the church or via the parish Zoom/YouTube and wish you and all your families a very happy & holy Christmas.
May the light of the new-born Christ lead us throughout the coming year.
6pm, Thurs. 24th December
FIRST MASS OF CHRISTMAS
8pm, Thursday 24th December
10.30am, Friday 25th December
MASS OF CHRISTMAS MORNING
Booking System. Given the Covid 19 situation it is difficult to estimate the size of congregations. If you intend attending one of the masses please let Fr John know ASAP which mass and exactly how many people will be in your party. Presently, the church is set out to accommodate 39 sets of 3 people from the same household. The layout can be amended but a strict maximum limit to comply with government regulations will be observed. If demand requires it, a further mass will be put on. If you would be willing to act as a Steward at any of the masses, please contact Fr John accordingly.
