Update, 19 December:
Both churches, St Theresa’s and St George’s, are now FULLY BOOKED for the Christmas Masses.
If, by 18 December, you had requested a place, you should by now have received confirmation.
Please do not just turn up without a confirmed place because stewards will have to turn you away.
Much has been different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In our parishes, the Christmas Masses will, unavoidably, be different too.
The capacity of our churches is reduced to allow for social distancing.
Prior booking of seats is essential.
Windows and/or doors will be kept open to ensure good ventilation.
There will be no singing.
The large cribs will not be in place.
Socialising indoors is not permitted.
The pattern of Masses - times and locations - will be different from previous years.
Although we may not have a crib in either of our churches this year, parishioners have their own at home. Some of these can be seen in the pictures below:
