Sunday Evening Mass Survey

Sunday Evening Mass Survey

PPC has been conducting a Survey regarding the Sunday evening mass as attendance at the has been falling off for a long time The and currently is consistently in the region of 50 persons. The PPC would like to establish whether there is any justification for continuing this mass, which currently requires commitment from Father, the Sacristans, Readers and Altar servers.

The Sunday evening mass for many years served as a vibrant Youth mass where young people took on the responsibility for singing, serving, and Proclaiming the Word. There were probably a number of factors that contributed to its success, amongst which would be leadership and commitment from a sufficient number of people.

It is also evident from the responses that the mass serves a purpose for a few people who work on weekends and have no other time they can attend. For many others it is convenient when they are out of town for the weekend or if they have other engagements they can still attend mass on their return.

Some people just don’t like getting up early in the morning

Certainly as Catholics we seem to have many choices to attend mass, and it could be argued that we make it easy for people to not make it their first priority!

Currently the mass is described as “sad” by a number of people in the survey although some enjoy the peace and quiet as a good way to round off their Sunday and prepare for a new week of activity.

Suggestions include:–

  • Returning to the concept of a Youth mass
  • introducing a choir with singing and instruments that appeal to young people.
  • Sermons that convey the power of Christ’s message
  • Substituting the mass with a service of praise and Worship to close off the Sunday
  • Re-introduction of communion under both kinds

If you wish to get involved in changing the situation and would like to work towards both improving attendance and the quality of worship please contact either:
