Change to Sunday Mass Times

Posted 1st October 2017 in Announcements

Dear Parishioners,

At a recent meeting of the Parish Pastoral Council it was proposed that Sunday morning mass times should be changed. This is for several reasons: There is just one priest working full time in the Parish, and I also have responsibility for St. Paul’s in Ayrfield and celebrate mass there on Sundays. At times, I also provide support and cover for St. Benedict’s Grange Park and St. Monica’s Edenmore. The Parish Pastoral Council feels that given the current situation, two Sunday morning masses here in Holy Trinity are adequate; it works well during the months of July and August. To that end, from Sunday 8th October mass times will be as follows:

Saturday Vigil - 6:30 pm
Sunday Morning - 9:30 am & 11:30 am

Music at the new 11:30am mass will be provided by the Folk Group and the Family Mass Group on alternate Sundays. The First CommunionDo This in Memory of Me‘ and Confirmation preparation masses will now take place at this new earlier mass time of 11:30am.

I am grateful for all the support and understanding I have received over the last couple of weeks. I appreciate that many who attend the 12:30pm mass may be disappointed by the changes but we hope you will continue to join us at the 11:30am mass.

Fr Gerry
