IMPORTANT PARISH UPDATE

Good evening.
Due to government advice, both of the priests at St Francis Xavier’s have to go into isolation for the next 10 days.
I have managed to arrange priests to celebrate the various Christmas Masses for you. It goes without saying that we are devastated not to be able to celebrate Christmas with you all.
 
Please note the new time of 7:30 pm at St Anthony’s on Christmas Eve. (Carols at 7:15pm).
 
The other Masses are as scheduled:
Vigil Mass at St Francis Xavier’s – 6:00pm
Midnight Mass at St Francis Xavier’s – Midnight (Carols at 11:45 pm)
 
Christmas day at St Francis Xavier’s 10 am and 12 noon
Christmas Day at St Anthony’s – 11:00am
 
Sunday 26th December – Feast of the Holy Family
St Anthony’s – 11:00 am
St Francis Xavier’s – 12 Noon only
 
THE GOVERNMENT ADVISES YOU TO DO A LATERAL FLOW TEST BEFORE COMING TO CHURCH. PLEASE TRY TO MAINTAIN A SAFE DISTANCE FROM OTHER HOUSEHOLDS, USE HAND SANITIZER AND WEAR A FACE COVERING.
 
There is not likely to be Mass in either church on Monday 28th or Tuesday 28th December.
 
PLEASE INFORM ANY FAMILY, FRIENDS or NEIGHBOURS WHO MAY NOT HAVE ONLINE ACCESS.
 
WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY AND HOLY CHRISTMAS.
 
Fr Jamie & Fr Martin.
