Arrangements for Attending Mass - Important Information
A Message from Father Neil
MASS INTENTIONS: Public Mass will be celebrated in both churches on the days indicated in the Mass schedule published. I will celebrate Mass privately on the other days and where requested intentions will be offered. As there is still NO SUNDAY OBLIGATION it would be acceptable to make one of the weekday Masses your main Mass.
FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN IN CHURCH AND SOCIAL DISTANCING MAINTAINED.
Although our churches remain open and Holy Mass will be celebrated, there will be some changes to come. We are asked to keep the Masses short, so some of the elements may be curtailed and, needless to say, we must heighten our awareness and practise of social distancing in church. Please follow the advice that movement in church must be kept to a minimum and conversations with those outside your household, including outside, are not allowed under government regulations. At the moment, home and nursing home visits, baptism and weddings are not permitted except in danger of death and at the discretion of the parish priest. Please follow the directions of the stewards as they are here to make sure we all stay as safe as possible. Thank you for your understanding. Let’s work together to keep everyone safe as possible and keep the Churches open.
I would also like to remind those elderly or vulnerable members of our parish community not to venture out unnecessarily. As you are aware during this pandemic there is no obligation to attend Mass, keeping safe is the overwhelming message advocated by the Church including when the weather is bad and particularly dangerous underfoot. Please God, as the vaccine is rolled out and with spring around the corner, it will not be too long before those of you who are sensibly shielding will be able to return safely back to Mass.
We continue to keep each other in prayer and we remember before God, particularly those who are suffering just now and those who care for them.
You can register for Mass here.
