Following a meeting with the parish Covid Co-ordinators and Father Boyd and assessing the most recent guidance from the Scottish Government, we have decided to issue this statement regarding Christmas Masses.
Masses over the Christmas period remain unchanged;
Christmas Eve (Friday) 6.00pm at St. John Ogilvie’s and 8.00pm at St. Mary’s
Christmas Day (Saturday) 9.30am at St. John Ogilvie’s and 11.00am at St. Mary’s
Boxing Day (Sunday) 9.30am at St. John Ogilvie’s and 11.00am at St. Mary’s
The Scottish Government has issued guidelines that worshippers of different families / bubbles should be a ‘respectful’ distance from each other. Both churches will therefore be used to accommodate all worshippers on this basis. If anyone wants to be ‘socially distanced’ the hall in each parish will be set out for 1 metre spacing to accommodate you over the Christmas Masses.
We would respectfully ask the following of you;
We are proud of the way our stewards have kept us safe in both parishes over the last 21 months, let’s not drop our guard now!
We anticipate additional numbers attending Christmas Masses and this may be the first time some of these people have returned to Mass. Please keep them right …… respectfully.
Please enjoy this time of year in the knowledge that every effort has been made to keep you safe while at church which includes sanitising the church after each time it’s used.
