Anointing Mass at St Thomas More

After consultation with the community at St Thomas More I have made the decision to cancel the Anointing Mass scheduled for this coming Thursday.  The reason for this is that over the past few days there has been a significant increase in the number of COVID-19 cases throughout the country. It is important that we do all we can to protect each other and especially those who are older and perhaps more vulnerable.

We will look for another date early in the New Year for an anointing Mass at St Thomas More.

November Mass Count

Each year during November the Diocese of Palmerston North undertakes a Mass count in all Parishes on each Sunday of the month. Since COVID-19 the number of people attending Sunday Mass has been much lower.

This year’s count reflects some increase in the number of people coming each week, however, there is still a sharp decrease from pre COVID-19. The following table tells an interesting story:

Maybe we could invite a friend or family member who has not returned to Sunday Mass following COVID-19 for Christmas Mass this year. Sometimes it only takes an invitation for them to feel welcome.

2018 1077

2019 1005

2020 1033

2021   370
