Mass Times

The Holy Mass is the lifeblood of the parish, both figuratively and literally! In line with current regulations and guidelines our dedicated team at St Nicholas continues to work hard to ensure that we are now able to open the church every day but Friday – which is Fr John’s rest day – for Masses to be celebrated as acts of public worship. Thanks to the tireless efforts of those at St Nicholas worship can continue in a sage way to enable us to laud and magnify our Blessed Lord together in the parish church.

Daily Mass can be offered at any of our altars. Please check the table as you enter the church for which chapel Mass is being offered in.

A priest is available before every Mass to hear Confessions, except when a service precedes the Holy Sacrifice. There is also a dedicated time after the Saturday morning Mass when the Sacrament of Penance (Confession) is available. One can always contact the parish priest to ask to make one’s Confession at another time if you are not able at any of the above times.

‘The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. it is the Sacrifice, dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day at the Altar. if you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with your eye, heart and mouth all that happens at the Altar. Further, you must pray with the Priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens at the Altar. when acting in this way you have prayed Holy Mass.’
