ARRANGEMENTS FOR SERVICES AS WE EMERGE FROM LOCKDOWN
Churches have reopened from Friday 26th March and so we can again attend Masses in person although attendances will be limited to 50 people. As before booking will be required for Weekend Masses but will not be necessary for weekday Masses.
Full details of the times of all Services are in the Bulletin (and also here) and all except the Sunday evening Masses at St Anthony’s will be streamed on YouTube.

The parish is in the diocese of Motherwell and is a merger of two parishes.
St. Mark’s parish was founded in 1956 and the church was formally opened in 1961 by Bishop James Scanlan.
St Anthony’s parish was established in 1965 and the church was formally opened in 1970 by Bishop Francis Thomson.
Message from Father Dougan, Parish Priest
Church Closures & Reopening
It is a pleasure to begin the process of reopening our churches. This will be a gradual process and we have to face the fact that it will be a while before things go back to the way they were before. In the meantime, please note that the obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday continues to be suspended. There will continue to be the option of following Mass and other services online.
Our two churches will open for Sunday and weekday Masses as announced in the weekly bulletin.
Please continue to pray for each other, for the most vulnerable, and for those seeking to navigate a way out of this crisis.
