Our thoughts are beginning to turn towards the end of the lockdown on 2 December 2020 and to Christmas. We do not know what restrictions might be relaxed over the Christmas period and what is possible for the celebration of Holy Mass at Christmas. We can assume that there will certainly be restrictions on the numbers of people who will be able to attend our Church at any one time. With that in mind the early thinking within our Diocese is to remind ourselves that Christmas is an octave – eight days – and that Masses celebrated between Christmas Eve/Day and New Year’s Day are all Christmas Masses. So assuming the restrictions are similar to those before the lockdown, we should arrange to come to Holy Mass sometime during that period to celebrate Christmas. At the moment there are many unknowns, please continue to visit our parish website for the latest news.
