Extract from Bishop Ray’s Message

As Congregations return to Church this week.  Please return slowly and be understanding. A warm welcome to all who join us for Holy Mass this first week and weekend with congregations returned. The delight of so many shows an appreciation that it is as vital to nourish the spirit and the soul, as well as the body.  We do not face the world on our own, God is with us.

There is upset and disappointment that large churches are restricted to a congregation of 50 people. The hope is that before the end of the month this will change to 100, where social distancing can be maintained.

Return To Public Mass:  To facilitate parishioners who wish to attend Mass, a reservation system will be in place for all masses in the parish.  Please contact the Parish Office (066 4018996 at these times) to indicate the mass you would wish to attend.

Monday 6.30 p.m. – 8.00 p.m.,
Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 9.30 a.m. – 1.30 p.m.
