Normal Mass Times.


This number of masses in our parish gives us great opportunity to spread out in the church. 


  • In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, hands will be sanitised at the doors as you enter.


  • We encourage all to wear masks. Except very young children.



Christmas Liturgies

We are looking for volunteers to assist us with our Christmas Liturgies, if you are willing to read, sanitise hands as people come into the church, collect, please see the times of the masses above and contact Carol in the office.


Your assistance will be very much appreciated.


Parochial House and Parish Office – Gates

At the moment, we find it necessary to close the gates to the Parish office from time to time due to the Donkeys on the road.


If you call to the parish office and find the gates closed, please contact the office via the intercom at the gate and we will open them for you.


Apologies for any inconvenience caused and hopefully this will only not be necessary going forward.


Christmas Cards

A limited number of Christmas Day Cards are available from both sacristies and the parish office.

The intentions of those to whom the cards are sent will be remembered at all Masses in the parish on Christmas Day.


Christmas Mass Bouquets are also available.


We are expecting a delivery of more cards during the week, and they will be available from next weekend.
