The QR codes are available at the entrance or on the collection boxes. Alternatively please use the following


PROPOSED CHANGES IN MASS TIMES: At the last PPC meeting a proposal to change Mass times was discussed. These changes are necessary due to the fact that there are only two priests assigned to celebrate Masses in the parish. Canon Law prohibits the regular celebration of more than one Mass on weekdays (two on Sundays) per priest (can. 905), except for a just cause and only with express permission by the local bishop. The proposed changes are as follows:

Cathedral10:00 + 17:0013:1013:1013:10
Villa Maria07:0007:0007:0018:00
Nazareth House08:4507:0007:0009:00

Please comment by email to until Sunday 23 July 2023.
