The tickets must be handed in at the Vigil Mass and the 10.30 Mass and are not interchangeable. Alternately collect a ticket from the Parish Office Monday – Friday between 10.30 am – 12.30 pm.

SHOULD I COME TO CHRISTMAS MASS? People might ask your advice. Could I suggest that if people haven’t been coming to Mass since March, Christmas would not be the right time to start again. Numbers are greatly restricted and we have to observe all the precautions about face-hands-space and ventilation. The church might be draughty as we are told to keep doors open to allow fresh air to circulate. Cardinal Vincent Nichols has suggested thinking of Christmas as ‘The Octive of Christmas’ and making your return within that time.
