Cllr Jackie Healy Rae believes that many children will enjoy the celebrations but won’t be brought to Mass from one end of the year to the next.

Cllr Jackie Healy-Rae has hit out at parents using Catholic Churches as the centrepiece for special occasions but not attending Mass 'from one end of the year to the next'.

He made the remarks after the Association of Catholic Priests' (ACP) questioned whether the current model for preparing children for the Eucharist was fit for purpose, with many parents not attending Mass before or after the event.
