Christmas Masses

With Advent joy we resume the public worship of the Church this Sunday at St Catherine's for the Second Sunday of Advent.

Masses at 8.30am and 10am only for the time being.


We need to look forward to some practical necessities for Christmas this year. Barring any re-imposition of restrictions, I am presuming we will be able to celebrate the Christ-MASS!

Because of the Covid 19 restrictions, our seating capacity is limited to 50 people at any one Mass. That has not been a problem for us so far, as only half our usual attendance has so far returned on any one Sunday. That may not be the case for Christmas. Looking back to last year, although on Christmas day itself numbers at each Mass were just under 50, Mass on Christmas Eve was filled to overcapacity with 130 people. That will not be possible this year, so we will need a booking system.

If I find we are vastly oversubscribed, I will consider putting on another Mass.

I invite you to apply to book your place at one of the three available Masses, which will be done on a first come, first served basis. 

But PLEASE if you book make sure you come; if you change your mind, please let me know. Otherwise, you will be depriving someone else of a chance to attend.

There is a signing up list in the hall (Please note the Covid safety precautions)


You may take away a form on Sunday and return it by post or by hand


you can email me 


telephone if none of the above are available to you.

For this I will need the name of each person attending 

The Mass you would like to attend:

7pm Christmas Eve

 8.30am Christmas Day

10am Christmas Day

Please note that although I would very much like to, I am not intending to celebrate an EF Mass this Christmas, unless enough requests make it viable.
