In view of the great demand for Anniversary Masses, pluri-intentional Mass will be offered at 7.30pm on each Saturday evening (Vigil Mass of the Sunday) commencing on Saturday 22nd February. A pluri-intentional Mass, as allowed by the Church, is a Mass offered for more than one person or intention, that is to say, the Mass will not be offered for only one intention but for as many as requested, including Months Mind and First Anniversary Masses. For those who have already booked Masses on Saturday evening at 7.30pm, these will be left unaffected unless families contact me to say that they are happy to allow this Mass to be shared. Offerings given for this Mass will be added to the parish funds. It is also hoped that should more than one Baptism take place on a given day (normally a Saturday) that these infants/individuals would normally be conferred with the Sacrament within the one ceremony. Sincerely, Fr Gerard
