In the light of the current Tier 4 restrictions in Wales, please read this carefully.
The advice of Welsh Government is to stay at home.
The legislation states:
“When Alert Level 4 restrictions apply to an area:
– There is an overarching requirement to stay at home if you live in the area and not to travel to the area if you live outside;
– most premises ordinarily open to the public are required to be closed.”
(The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No. 5) (Wales) Regulations 2020. Explanatory Note).
The regulations are more relaxed for Christmas Day.
It is possible to have public Masses for Christmas. However, attendance at these should be assessed as to whether you think it is absolutely necessary for you to attend: the threat of Coronvirus will still be there, and there is no obligation to attend a Mass.
In order to facilitate those who wish to stay at home, a Christmas Vigil Mass will be broadcast on our parish YouTube page at 6pm on 24th December. All other Christmas Eve Masses are now cancelled. The link to watch the on-line Mass is here: http://m.youtube.com/user/LIFBB
At Narberth: the 6pm Vigil Mass is now cancelled. All those who have pre-booked a seat at 6pm, have automatically been given a new seat at the 11:00am Christmas Day Mass. No further seating is available.
At Haverfordwest: the 5pm and 9pm Vigil Masses are now cancelled. Anyone who was previously booked for these times, and who still wishes to attend a Mass, may re-book a seat for Christmas Day. There are still spaces available at the Midnight Mass, 9:00am Mass and 11:00am Mass. To re-book a new seat please call Ann Barnes on the number given below. If you are already booked for a Christmas Day Mass, your booking will continue unaffected. If you have already booked a seat, but have decided it is too risky to attend, then please cancel your booking.
Calls to Ann Barnes must be made on Tuesday 22nd December between 3:00pm and 5:00pm. Her number is 01437 765365. Please do not call outside of these hours.
