Update (8th December) The 4pm Christmas Eve Mass will be open for booking soon. It is unlikely that you will be granted 3-4 seats. We only have 7 benches that take 3-4 at each Mass. Please think carefully before you make your booking. Like all parishes throughout the world, we will be unable to provide room in the inn for everyone this year.

Update (4th December) Kindly refrain from making repeat bookings with the same requests. Such repeat bookings will be deleted. Parishioners will be contacted after 8 December to either confirm or state that their booking has not been successful. If your booking is not successful (due to the number of seats you have requested) you will be notified and only then may you make a new booking.   

Update (3rd December) There are no benches with 4 seats available at 6pm and 8pm Mass on Christmas Eve. There are also no benches with 3 places at those Masses. A new 4pm Christmas Eve Mass will be added to the booking system sometime on Tuesday 8 December. 

Update (3rd December) It will take time to process bookings. You may only book a maximum of 4 seats. We cannot guarantee that you will be given all the seats you request. We now aim to process bookings during the week beginning 7th December.
