As advised in previous newsletters, discussions have been taking place at Diocesan level and it is expected that all parishes will be advised to reduce their Mass timetable.
Thanks to all who have already submitted their thoughts and suggestions. We encourage parishioners to share your suggestions regarding reduction of Mass times in our Parish to our Parish office via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01-8412647.
Many agree that in our parish, we don’t have need for four masses at the weekend. When our Churches are full, the celebration of Mass is a far more enriching experience for all.
