Dear Parents and Children of St Mary’s Catholic Academy,


I am writing to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


It has been good to meet so many of you over the last three months: at my Induction as Parish Priest at the beginning of November and at the School Production last week.


Since I arrived in the parish I have ensured that there is an opportunity for a weekly celebration of Mass in School. This takes place on Thursday morning at 9.30am, and I am delighted that the Children enjoy these celebrations and that you are able to be present.


Next term there will be an opportunity to meet with the parents of the Year 3 Children and Year 6 Children preparing for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation. .


Next week we will be celebrating the Birth of Christ on Christmas Day. I would like you to know that there will be a warm welcome for you and your family at St Mary’s Church. The Mass times for Christmas are:


Sunday 24 December – Christmas Eve

5.30pm Carols, Readings and the Blessing of the Crib

6pm Christmas Mass


Monday 25 December – Christmas Day

12 midnight Christmas Mass

8.30am Polish Mass

10am Christmas Mass


I hope that you have a good Christmas and New Year.


Yours sincerely,

Fr Martin

Parish Priest
