Mass attendance was not obligatory during the Covid Pandemic but as of the 5th June 2022, Pentecost, the Bishops have reinstated the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days. Parents applying for a place at Catholic Primary or High School’s, under a faith based criteria, will need to complete a Supplementary Information Form and get this signed and stamped by their Parish Priest.
