St Bride’s Parish Consultation on the Provision of Holy Mass

Our Deanery is in the fortunate position to have some of the highest attendance at Sunday Mass, and enjoys plentiful provision of Sunday Masses within the immediate area (please see the lists below).

We are all too aware of the reality of the decline in number of clergy in our Diocese and the demands on the existing clergy. As part of our parish preparations for the future and following the direction of Bishop Toal, we have been asked to reflect on our current Mass provision. We therefore ask for your help by taking a few minutes to complete this Questionnaire no later than Sunday 1st March. The results will be presented to the Parish when collated.

Please click this link to complete the Parish Questionnaire .
