Pastoral Letter on Season of Christmas

In a Pastoral Letter to be read in parishes on the 1st Sunday of Advent, the Bishops of Scotland encourage all the Catholic faithful “to renew their covenant with the Church and her worship”. The faithful are encouraged to attend Mass on both days, or at least once on Christmas weekend. Saving any serious worsening of the pandemic, the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation will be reinstated from Sunday 2nd January 2022, the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord. This obligation does not bind those in ill health or those showing symptoms of COVID-19 or with underlying health conditions, or those with responsibilities for people in need of special care.
