Due to severe restrictions on number attending Christmas Masses this year Ascension Parish will put on an extra Mass on Christmas Eve and an extra Mass on Christmas morning.
Christmas Eve (Thursday)
Masses at 4.30pm, 6.30pm and 8.30pm. (Ticket only)
Christmas Day (Friday)
Masses at 8am, 10am and 12noon.
St Stephen’s Day (Saturday)
Masses at 10am & 6pm (Vigil)
Masses at 9am and 11.30am.
You will notice that admittance to all three Masses on Christmas Eve will be by ticket only. (All over the age of five years will have to have a ticket to gain entry to the Church). These tickets will be available after December 13th.
We ask our regular parishioners if they would graciously allow the 4.30pm and the 6.30pm Masses on Christmas Eve be for children – with older parishioners coming to the 8.30pm Mass or any of the Masses on Christmas morning.
With many smaller Churches not able to cater for their parishioners the bigger churches expect much larger congregations this year. This Christmas will ask a lot from Parishioners – Yet, our people have responded magnificently with all of the demands made on them throughout this pandemic.
