Update on Attendance at Mass
I have added two additional Masses at the weekend (Saturday: 5.00pm & Sunday: 10.00am) to enable those, who have registered for Mass at Holy Family, to attend every week as opposed to every second/third week.
Everyone who has registered for Mass at the weekend has been allocated a Group and Mass. If you have not received a call or email regarding these changes please contact the parish as soon as possible.
The Mass schedule for the weekend is as follows;
Saturday (Vigil) - 5.00pm (Group A) & (Vigil) 6.00pm (GroupB)
Sunday 10.00am (Group A) & 11.00am (Group B)
Please note these additional Masses are a temporary arrangement; they will end when the current restrictions are lifted.
Note too for you who have not yet registered, the only weekend Mass for which you can now register is the Vigil at 5.00pm (only 6 places available!). Once these places are filled anyone wishing to attend Mass at the weekend will have to wait until the number permitted to attend Mass (50 at present) is increased. Mindful that the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday is still suspended you may, if you wish, register for a weekday Mass.
I have been able to add these extra Masses thanks to the willingness of our wonderful band of stewards and cleaners to put in an extra few hours work; a kindness for which I am most grateful.
As for weekday Mass there will no longer be a public Mass on Saturday morning (9.30) after the 15 August. This Mass will be celebrated in private for now, simply to ease the pressure on our volunteers whose workload has been increased with the added Masses at the weekend.
Again, thank you for your prayers and support during this time of upheaval; and for your patience and understanding too.
God bless you.
