Fourth Sunday of Advent 19th December 2021
We have eight Masses for Christmas; six Vigil Masses and two on Christmas Day. Times on the front of this Newsletter.
All are welcome to join in our celebrations.
This facilitates us all to spread out well in our Churches.
The 9pm Mass will be uploaded to Youtube and will be available to view from 10pm.
Alternatively, click into Youtube and search Stamullen Julianstown Christmas Mass.
Guidelines to protect us all:
- We ask all to wear Masks.
- Please sanitise your hands on entering and exiting the church.
- Please fill the church from the front following the guidance of the Stewards, and exit, starting from the back.
- Please respect social distancing guidelines, (we recommend 2 metres), especially when exiting, and when outside the church.
- Families are invited to any of our eight Masses and we ask that you sit in your family groups.
We will be following Government guidelines in all our churches. As you are aware, this is an evolving situation.
We are looking for volunteers to assist us with our Christmas Masses, if you are willing to sanitise hands as people come into the church, or do collections or steward, please contact Carol in the Parish Office.
Your assistance will be very much appreciated.
