New parish directives as a result of coronavirus (COVID–19). Click here for more details.

Mass Times

If you would like to attend Mass on Sunday, you need to register below or notify the parish office by phone or email Monday—Friday 9am to 1pm. There is now no need to register for Mass from Tuesday to Friday.

For the present, there is no obligation for you to attend Mass. Your Sunday obligation is satisfied by such practices as observing livestreamed Mass or prayerfully reading Sacred Scripture.

To ensure the safety of others, if you are sick or have symptoms of cold and flu, please do not come to Mass. The elderly need to realise that they are more susceptible to the effects of Covid-19 and take an added risk if they attend Mass. Acting prudently is integral to a holy life.

When you come to the church for Mass you will need to register at the entrance that you have attended so that the virus can be tracked if there is an outbreak. You will also need to sit at the pews indicated and at a distance of 1.5 metres from others. You should not touch anything unnecessarily, for example, please do not touch statues or candles.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we rebuild our timetable of public worship.

Fr Bernard Gordon
