Booking for Holy Mass

Please see the days and times of Mass at each Church on the Mass Times page of this site. We follow a booking system for the two Masses in Welshpool (Sat. 6.30pm and Sun. 9.00 am) and one Mass in Llanidloes and one Mass in Newtown (Sat. 4.00pm and Sun. 11.00 am respectively) on weekends. In Welshpool we are allowed to have 21 people in the congregation at a time, in Newtown we can have only 20 and in Llanidloes we can have 12.  If you wish to attend any of these masses, the preferred way is to email the parish office (email address is priestwelshpool@rcdwxm.org.uk) Just give the names for whom you want to reserve and which Mass(please mention the time and place). If possible, also provide a mobile phone number for the purposes of track and trace. N.B: I will only reply if you are too late and the places are all taken (so that you don’t have a wasted trip.) If this happens, feel free to reserve for an-other Mass or the following week. Places will be given on a first come first served basis. Booking for the next Mass will only be possible from the previous Mon-day till Friday evening. Please be aware that you cannot book a seat for Mass months ahead.

If you do not have access to email or internet, you may ring (if I am not there please leave a message) the parish office but please do so during office hours(10am to 4pm) to the following number 01938 555657 or to my mob: 07401441108.

As things develop, we may need to adapt this system so be sure to watch for up-dates. Please think of our parishioners who may find all this tricky and help them out if needs be. Please forward this message to any of your contacts who may be interested.

Please be aware that toilet facilities are NOT available.

Please bring your own Missal when you come to the Church for Holy Mass. For those who do not have an up to date missal, there is a free APP that is available to download -the daily Catholic Mass Readings on your iPhone or smart phone.
