About this Event

As places are restricted, please only book if you are definitely intending to come. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please cancel your booking and if you are having any difficulties doing that, please contact us.

Although the obligation to attend Mass is still suspended, St. Mark's is now holding its usual Vigil and Sunday Masses.

As part of the "new normal", Mass will be a little different from usual. Numerous elements are being omitted to make the Mass shorter, seating will be allocated strictly according to the order in which people arrive and we will all need to follow strict instructions governing how we move around the church.

The diagrams below should help to explain how it will work, but further details can be found in this helpful guidance from the Bishops' Conference of Scotland.

  • On arrival, a steward will tick you off on a register.
  • If queuing outside the church, please maintain social distancing.
  • Sorry, but we have been instructed to discourage parishioners from forming groups outside the church.
  • On entering the church, a steward will show you to your seat.
  • People will be seated in the order they arrive, starting from the front of the church.
