We welcome you to journey with us through the seasons of Advent and Christmastide. Due to social distancing (2m) there is a restriction on the number able to attend masses. You need to book a place in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01709 363753 and give your name and a contact phone number for reasons of test and trace. If you are attending as a family or social bubble we will need the names of each person in the group and their contact details also. Please remember that everyone fro the age of 12 years must wear a mask .
People must arrive in good time before mass begins. Late arrivals may not be admitted.
The Sunday obligation has been lifted because of the pandemic. This means that you do not need to attend mass on a Sunday and can attend on another day of the week. There will be people who because of work commitments, can only attend on a Sunday so if you are able to choose another day this will help in providing an opportunity to attend mass during the week for everyone. Likewise, while there are four masses during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the other days of the Christmas Octave (26 Dec to 1 Jan) are days on which the celebration of the birth of Christ our Saviour will be celebrated.
Living with the virus has been challenging but we have also found new ways of living our faith. May we continue to journey together with generous hearts and growing trust in the presence of the Lord in our lives. God Bless, Fr Desmond.
