Post of 11th December 2021
Covid-19 continues to impact on our lives, especially when considering large gatherings. After some reflection, and adhering to Government guidelines, the following times are proposed;
Christmas Eve (Friday 24th) Masses:
Tenure – 5pm & 6.30pm – max 150 at each Mass
Fieldstown – 8pm & 9.30pm – max 100 at each Mass
Christmas Day (Saturday 25th) Masses:
Fieldstown – 9.45am & Tenure – 11.15am
This schedule will facilitate 750 people to attend Mass for Christmas (almost 5 times the number that attend each week currently). While I understand that you may not find the time/Church that you normally attend. Please try to be flexible and you must follow all guidelines.
You must book a FREE ticket to attend.
As with last year, tickets will be available online at Eventbrite and will be released on Wednesday 15th December at 9am. Bookings will close on Tuesday 21st December at midnight.

The most important thing is that we continue to do everything we can to keep each other safe over Christmas. Thank you for helping to achieve this.
May the peace of the Christ-child be in your hearts and homes this Christmas. Happy Christmas!
