BOOKING TO ATTEND MASS IN PERSON
Please note that we have a new email address for taking Mass bookings.
Please ring or email to book to attend Mass on this email address and telephone number only:
As you can imagine, we receive a huge number of emails for Mass booking and we anticipate that this will only increase as Christmas approaches. By having a dedicated email address for Mass booking ONLY this will enable us to accept help from volunteers and to keep all Mass booking emails separate from other parish matters. When you book to attend Mass, please limit the subject matter of your email to Mass booking only - as these emails may be opened, read and responded to by volunteers assisting in the office. For all other parish, pastoral or confidential matters, please continue to use the existing email addresses as shown on the front page of this newsletter.
CHRISTMAS MASS TIMES
It is now clear that social-distancing and booking a place at Mass are still going to be required over the Christmas period. This severely limits the number of attendees at any one Mass but we are committed to ensuring that as many people as possible will be able to come to Mass at Christmas. To that end, our priests are celebrating many more Masses than is normal. We strongly encourage you to book your place at a Christmas Mass as soon as possible. This will not only secure a place at the Mass you wish to attend but it will also help us enormously, enabling us to spread the workload of taking bookings, organising and recruiting stewards, arranging church cleaning between each Mass and seat-planning. If we all work together to support and help each other, we can ensure that everyone who wants a place at Mass at Christmas will get one.
