Bishop Marcus has indicated that if we think in terms of the Octave of Christmas – the eight days from the 25th December to 1st January – it opens the possibility to a lot more people coming to Mass at Christmas than if we restrict Christmas day to just the 25th December. Any mass attended during the Octave of Christmas counts as attending Christmas day mass.

It could be the case that many of you will simply not be coming to Mass this Christmas, and this is perfectly understandable.  However, for those of you who wish to attend Mass this Christmas, booking can now be made through the parish website or by ringing Helen Jordan on 07957112753.
