CHRISTMAS MASSES This Christmas we are limited in the number of people we can accommodate at Masses this year due to government regulations. It is sadly not possible simply to turn up to a Christmas Mass if you have not booked. The Bishops of England and Wales have suggested that the Masses during the Christmas Octave (i.e. Dec 26th until Jan 1st) be considered additional Masses to celebrate Christmas liturgically as churches will not be able to cater for everyone on Christmas Eve/Day. Our Masses therefore on 27th Dec for The Holy Family/ Wed 30th Dec for the 6th day of the Octave / Fri 1st Jan Solemnity of Mary Mother of God are likely to be popular. Book now at www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/st-patricks-catholic-church-corsham-30646123644. We have extended ticket numbers to 50 for these masses. Sadly, the 9pm Mass we floated for Christmas eve has not attracted sufficient interest. We will contact those who have expressed an interest if there are cancellations at the scheduled Christmas masses. This makes it even more important that if you have booked and find you cannot come you please cancel to enable others to take your tickets. We remind you that the current suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass also applies to Christmas.
