To attend Public Masses it is necessary to book in advance. It will not be possible to attend Mass with having booked a place. Please follow the instructions on the website to book a place at Mass.
 
At all times our priority must be to keep people safe. We ask that everyone respects the 2 meter safe distancing rule. Each person must remain in their designate seat.
 
I would like to thank everyone who has volunteered to steward and to keep the Churches clean and safe.

CELEBRATION OF MASS
 
Beginning from the weekend of 15th/16th August, it is hoped:
 
1. To reintroduce a 4pm Vigil Mass in St. Columba’s and a 7.15pm Sunday Evening Mass in St. James’.
2. To revert to having Sunday morning Mass at 9.45am in St. Columba’s and at 11am in St. James’
3. On Saturday 22nd August it is hoped to introduce a Saturday morning Mass at 10am. Followed by the possibility of the Sacrament of Reconciliation being available.
 
This will depend primarily on the availability of volunteers to steward and to sanitise the Church.
