Masses this week are as follows: Tuesday 7th 7.00p.m., Wednesday to Friday 10.00a.m., Saturday 3.00p.m. (Auchtermuchty) and 5.00p.m. (Kinross), Sunday 12th 9.00a.m., 11.00a.m., 1.00p.m. in St. James’.
Confessions are available after weekday Masses, and after 1.00p.m. Mass on Sunday.
For the future:
Many more Masses have been provided for the parish over the past while (5 at the moment, whereas we were used to only 3), given the removal of social distancing regulations I intend to move back to having 3 Masses again at the weekend from Saturday 18th / Sunday 19th September. After having received some feedback from parishioners via email, and having considered the overall attendance at the Masses provided I have made the following decision that from 18th/19th September the regular weekend Mass timetable will be as follows:
Saturday 18th September – 5.00p.m. Vigil Mass in St. James’, Kinross
Sunday 19th September – 9.00a.m. Mass in St. Matthew’s, Auchtermuchty
Sunday 19th September – 11.00a.m. Mass in St. James’
Given the current numbers attending Holy Mass this provides more than adequate opportunity for parishioners to attend and still keep a reasonable social distance should they wish. Parishioners should also be reminded that St. Matthew’s is a large church and capable of catering for a good number of people and providing ample opportunity for those who still wish to keep some physical distance from fellow parishioners.
Please be so kind as to pass on this information to your fellow parishioners.
