IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Attending Mass During Level 4 Restrictions
We have now moved to Level 4 and so the maximum number of worshippers at any one Mass is 20 people.
Therefore, over the next three weeks these will be the arrangements:-
Weekday and Saturday Morning
- A public Mass will be celebrated every day from Monday to Saturday at 9.30am.
- A place at these Masses needs to be booked on-line at
- On average about 40-45 people come to daily Mass so perhaps only book in for weekday Mass every second or third day.
Thank you for your help and cooperation
Saturday Evening and Sunday Morning
There will be 4 Masses on Saturday evening and Sunday morning;
- 4.00pm, 6.00pm on Saturday evening
- 9.30am and 11.30am on Sunday morning.
- Attendance at these Masses can be booked on-line at
- Therefore, there are only 80 spaces available for worshippers over these four Masses.
Perhaps, leave these spaces for those parishioners who cannot come during the week because of work commitments.
Thank you for your help and cooperation
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MOBILE PHONE BOOKING LINE ON A FRIDAY EVENING IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
And so, during this time of Level 4, perhaps if you can, avoid the weekend Masses and come once to a weekday Mass as a way of being faithful to coming to Mass once a week.
This Tuesday 24th November at 9.30am there is the Requiem Mass of Mrs. Mary Watson nee Heron and this Mass is restricted to 20 family members and friends.
PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN WHEN COMING TO MASS TO KEEP YOURSELF AND EVERYBODY SAFE
- Sanitise your hands as you enter and leave the Church
- Please keep 2 metre social distance at all times, especially when moving around the Church
- Please leave the Church as soon and as quickly after receiving Holy Communion
- Please do not congregate either in the porch or in the car park before and after Mass
Thank you for your help, assistance and co-operation in these difficult times. Let us continue to hold one another in prayer.
