Getting ready...

Preparations have begun to get the church ready for the Christmas celebrations.  Slowly, the subdued feeling of Advent is giving way to the joy of the Holy Nativity, as the transformation of the sanctuary and nave takes place.  It gives a real sense of transition from one season to another, as we remain in the purple vestments of Advent, while being surrounded by the first outward signs of Christmas.

The schedule for Christmas is as follows:

Christmas Eve
Sung Mass at 5:00 p.m.
Choral Music at 11:00 p.m.
Solemn Mass and Procession of the Christ Child at 11:30 p.m.

Christmas Day
Sung Mass at 10:00 a.m.

Feast of the Holy Family (Sunday, 26th December)
Low Mass at 7:30 a.m.
Sung Masses at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Latin Mass (O.F) at 6:00 p.m.
