Ash Wednesday: Masses and distribution of Ashes: 7.30 and 10.00 am; 7.30 pm.
Daily Mass during Lent, Monday – Saturday 10.00 am
Regular times for Masses:
For a long time now (in fact all during Canon Hill’s time at St. Matthew’s), we have continued to offer the same number of Masses as there were when 2 or more active priests were attached to the parish. Now there is only one.
Canon Law decrees that no priest should celebrate more than 2 Masses on a given day, with the exception of All Souls’ day and Christmas day, when 3 Masses may be celebrated by any priest.
During Lockdown and beyond, we adjusted numbers of Masses
Saturday Vigil: 5.30 pm (soon to be reinstated)
Sunday: 9.30 am, 11.00 am (with children’s liturgy during school term when this can be restarted).
Monday to Saturday: 10.00 am
Holyday of Obligation Masses:
Vigil Mass: 7.30pm; 7.30 am, 10.00 am
Saturdays, for the present, Confessions are available when requested but must be heard in a space where 2m social distancing can be observed.
