As you know, we have set up a booking system for attendance at Mass over the Christmas period. The church is now FULL for the Vigil Mass at 6 pm on 24th December, and so any further attendees will be seated in the hall. There are still places available for both Midnight Mass and the 10 am Christmas morning Mass. Please send any requests to SaopXmasMassbooking@gmail.com
Live streaming of public masses.
St Anthony’s is planning to start streaming public masses from Christmas. Fr Pius, servers, Eucharistic ministers and readers will need to sign a consent form allowing their image to be broadcast. The congregation will not be visible when seated in their pews but, having received Holy Communion, those who turn to the right will be briefly on camera. If any member of the congregation who wishes to receive communion but who does not want their image to be broadcast please can they sit on the left hand side of church, or return to their seats via the left side aisle.
