Next Sunday (14th June) is Corpus Christi and traditionally we would have our procession after Mass. However due to Covid19 this is not possible so after Mass there will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament until 1.00p.m. This will be behind closed doors and the Church TV will be left on for the duration. Please note that the church will not open until 1.00p.m
I want to thank the families who have agreed for their family members to be included in our multi-intentional weekday Masses. This will continue for the foreseeable future until all Masses that were booked during March, April & May have been said. All families will be contacted in the weeks ahead with dates. To all parishioners my sincere thanks for the envelopes you continue to return and for the kind messages of encouragement I am receiving.
This is a testing time for all of us but little by little we are seeing that the HSE and our Government are trying to allow us get back to living so we now begin looking forward with a sense of renewed hope.
Once again, I remind those that are in a position to visit our Churches to keep in mind our requests for safety:
- The safest way to visit is to “walk around, stand and pray, don’t sit down and touch nothing.
- Please use hand sanitisers in each Church and remember sanitise carefully as you enter and there is no risk of you bringing in the virus on your hands.
- Sanitise your hands as you exit and there is no risk of you bringing the virus out on your hands.
- Practice social distancing and follow signage

THE IRISH BLESSING
A MUSICAL TREAT
For the first time in history over 300 churches and Christian organisations from every county in Ireland have joined together to sing an ancient Irish Blessing. It can be accessed on you tube by typing in “The Irish Blessing”. It is a beautiful and gives an opportunity to experience the talent we have in our country.
You can drop Trocaire Boxes or donations into our Parish Office from next Monday. We will return to the Diocese within 2 weeks. Your continued support is appreciated.
Our Parish office will open on Monday at 10.00a.m. We are asking that Social distancing is observed at all times.
