Extract from Bishop Ray Browne’s letter regarding Covid restrictions: It is great news that we will be able to welcome more people to our churches from September 6th. The hope is that on October 22nd, the majority of all public health restrictions will be lifted, but this will be subject to the prevailing public health advice. It is therefore important that all of the current protective measures continue to be observed so as to ensure that our churches remain safe places for people to visit and attend. The incidence rate of Covid-19 within the Diocese remains a cause for concern and for that reason we recommend the following in relation to Baptisms, First Holy Communions & Confirmations: – • Baptisms – Continue to keep numbers attending Baptisms limited to immediate family members, (including Godparents and Grandparents). • First Communion & Confirmation – Limit the numbers attending to immediate family only, namely, parents and siblings of the child and in the case of Confirmations, the sponsor of the child
