Christmas Masses and Crib Visits

Attendance at Christmas Masses is limited, so you MUST book a place or you will not be able to attend. Go to and find the church you wish to attend. The Christmas Masses available will be listed and you can register to book a place. Please do not come to a Christmas Mass without having booked a place – you will not be allowed in. Bookings open one week before the Mass.

Crib Visit; If you are not able to attend Mass, then come along to any of our churches for a Crib Visit. St Augustine’s, Our Lady & St Edward’s and Sacred Heart will all be open for you to pop in; Wednesday 23rd 11 – 1am and 6 – 8pm and then Thursday 24th 11 – 1am.

When you come, you can spend a few minutes in prayer before the crib, light a candle and you will receive a gift from the parish to take home to help celebrate Christmas with the family; a candle to light for Christmas Dinner, a tree decoration in the shape of the nativity, a Christmas quiz for all the family and a leaflet with some prayers to use at home. There might even be some chocolate to take home too!
