INTERRUPTION TO MASS SCHEDULE IN OUR CLUSTER

Due to the current planned and unplanned absence of some of the priests from our Grouping of Parishes, there is a possibility that a scheduled weekday Mass may not take place in any of the churches at short notice.
We have made arrangements for Masses to be covered and we are very grateful to those who are assisting us but at any given time unforeseen circumstances may cause an interruption to our Mass schedule. Hopefully such a situation will not arise but if it does we ask for your patience and understanding
