This is final confirmation that all Christmas Masses in both St. Matthew’s and St. James’ are now fully booked. My sincere apologies to anyone who has tried to book a place but has been unsuccessful. Despite the restrictions we will still have a significant attendance overall given the provision of five possible Masses between the two churches.
When it comes closer to the time I will try to ensure that those who were unable to attend a Christmas Mass will be given priority to attend the following Saturday and Sunday Masses on 26th and 27th of December respectively. I also give you advance notification that in Auchtermuchty on that weekend there will only be a 3.00p.m. Vigil Mass (this is on Saturday 26th December) and there will be no 9.00a.m. Mass on 27th December. This will be for that weekend only.
The schedule for Masses for the week of Wednesday 16th to Sunday 20th December will be issued after this weekend, and most probably this coming Monday.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in regard to Mass provision, as many of you have already expressed to me, it is an unenviable task having to try to organise bookings for Mass when indeed we would normally be delighted to welcome as many people as possible.
God bless you,
