Welcome to the Halifax Deanery
The following link is for ordinary time 2020 Weekend Masses in the Halifax Deanery
Our thoughts are beginning to turn towards the end of the lockdown on 2 December 2020 and to Christmas. We do not know what restrictions might be relaxed over the Christmas period and what is possible for the celebration of Holy Mass at Christmas. We can assume that there will certainly be restrictions on the numbers of people who will be able to attend our Churches at any one time. With that in mind the early thinking within our Diocese is to remind ourselves that Christmas is an octave – eight days – and that Masses celebrated between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are all Christmas Masses. So that assuming the restrictions are similar to those before the lockdown, then we should arrange to come to Mass sometime during that period to celebrate Christmas.
