Christmas Masses tickets

You will understand that this year, as last, health regulations dictate that the numbers at the Christmas Vigil and Day Masses are limited.  To ensure the safety of all it is proposed that the majority of the five Christmas Masses will be ticketed so as to avoid the disappointment of not gaining entry for any of the Christmas Masses on the day.  The four ticketed Masses are the following:

Christmas Eve: 6pm and 10pm / Christmas Day: 9.00am and 10:30am

Tickets for these Masses will be distributed on a ‘first come first served’ basis from the Parish Centre on Friday, 17th December after the 7:30am and 10am Masses.

The 12 noon Mass on Christmas Day will be open to the maximum number permitted by the regulations, again on a ‘first come first served’ basis.


Sunday 23rd December

After 7:30am and 10:00am Weekly Masses and after 10:00am and 6:00pm Masses Saturdays

Christmas Eve – Friday 24th December
