CHRISTMAS MASSES – AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM FR MICHAEL
There will be six Christmas Masses at the Cathedral, Christmas Eve at 4.00pm, 5.30pm and Solemn Mass with Bishop Robert at 7.30pm and on Christmas Day at 8.00am, 10.00am and 11.30am.
There will be 3 Christmas Masses at St Dominic’s, Christmas Eve at 4.00pm and 6.00pm and on Christmas Day at 10.00am.
In order to ensure a fair distribution of people across the Masses and to ensure safety we will apply a ticketing system. Simply call the Cathedral Office, Telephone 0191 2326953 extension 200 or email email@example.com and state how many tickets you require for a particular Mass. Alternatively, sign one of the sheets with your request which will be available at Masses over the weekend of December 12th/13th. Tickets will then be distributed prior to the Christmas Masses.
Please try to spread yourselves across all Masses. With 9 Masses in two large Churches we should easily be able to accommodate safely all those who wish to come to Mass. People will naturally arrive without tickets and of course will not be turned away if there is still space, but I encourage you please to apply for tickets so we can plan properly for our Celebrations.
The 7.30pm Mass on Christmas Eve and the 11.30am Mass on Christmas Day will also be livestreamed on YouTube.
