Although State Government restrictions on Mass attendance numbers have eased, our parishes are still well below normal capacity. This will be especially noticeable at Christmas and may mean you have to think about attending Mass at a different time or place to what you are used to.
Don’t worry – human beings have always dealt with upheaval in the past. We know we have this much in common with Jesus, Mary and Joseph: over 2000 years ago they had to travel to Bethlehem in order to comply with a census. Now, in the time of the COVID19 pandemic, we have to face something a little less arduous – pre-planning and registering to attend Christmas Mass.
