Mass and Service Times

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic...September 2020 update

Thanks to the generosity of our stewards and cleaners as of September we are able to celebrate Mass together on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday evenings.

Fr Bernard continues to celebrate Mass privately at 9am on the other mornings with Sunday Mass continuing to be streamed from 9am on Sundays through the Sacred Heart Facebook page.

Please also see the Newsletter page which includes each week's Sunday Homily and Bidding Prayers.

See Today's Readings at Mass to join in each day.

Re-opening of the church for public celebration of Mass

Thanks to the generosity of our stewards and cleaners we are able to celebrate Mass at 9.30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays (no booking required)  and 6pm on Saturday evenings for which pre-booking is essential. 

Currently we have 17 ‘places’ available so our numbers will be limited, but not necessarily to 17. If people from the same household come together they take up one place, e.g. a family of 4 would occupy one place just as an individual would occupy one place.

To ensure a place at a Saturday evening Mass parishioners are asked to ‘book’ a place.  To do this please phone Susan Gibson between 4.00-6.00pm on the Friday beforehand.  Please Contact Us for details.

Once those 17 places have been allocated Susan has to advise any further callers that the Church is full for this Mass.  In this event Susan could offer a place for the following Saturday 6.00pm Mass, but she is not able to take block bookings for the weeks ahead!

If the Church is fully allocated and someone arrives who has NOT booked a place they will be advised by a steward that, unfortunately, on this occasion, there is no room.

The Live Streaming of Mass on Sunday Morning at 9.00am will continue as over the past few months. 


Because of the situation the Church finds herself in, the obligation of the faithful to attend Holy Mass on a Sunday or Holy Day of Obligation is removed, until further notice.
