Dear Friends, due to HSE guidelines it will not be possible for our usual large congregations to assemble for Mass on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. We wish to remind you that the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days remains suspended during the pandemic. But Christmas is about more than just one day. Families are welcome to attend Mass at some point during the twelve days from Christmas Eve to Epiphany.

Christmas Masses will also be widely available over webcam and we strongly encourage families to “tune in” from the “domestic churches” of their living rooms and join with those who are gathering in their local churches in welcoming the birth of the Christ-child. We also invite families or “household bubbles” to pay a visit to their local church at some time during the twelve days to offer a Christmas prayer at the crib and pray together for their families and for those particularly impacted by the pandemic.

Every Joy & blessing for Christmas and New Year, Very Rev John Delany, Fr Paul Ludden and Fr Aaron Vinduska.

It is important for people to understand that this is a time when we all have to work together and look out for each other by observing best practice. We thank you for your understanding and for your support and I look forward to being able to meet people personally as the restrictions are eased. Very Rev John Delany,
