Good News - Opening for Mass - Please Book Your Place

altWe are delighted to announce that the church will be open for Mass from Wednesday next 29th. July. 

Masses will be celebrated on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 10am

On Saturday at 6pm and on Sunday at 10am and 12noon

To be admitted to the celebration of Mass
you must book a seat.

Please see below

I want to open the church to our congregation to allow you to attend the celebration of Mass in our own Parish. As we can only accommodate small numbers and in order to respect the restrictions and guidelines to keep everyone safe, I am proposing the following.

* Attending Sunday Mass is presently not obligatory. One can attend Mass on any day of the week and this fulfils the Sunday obligation.

* If everyone is agreeable to attend Mass once in the week we could cater for a wider spread of people. If you can attend a weekday Mass it would be helpful. Mass will continue to be shown on the webcam every day.

* Depending on how it works out we may be able to take more initiatives as we proceed into the future and we welcome suggestions.

* Because of the small numbers that may be admitted it will be necessary to ‘book’ places for the Mass of your choice each week. We could admit more people when family members who live together advise us of this in their booking.

* Please note also that while in the church, the webcam is on live stream every day.

How to book your seat at Mass

To book your seat at Mass, please phone the Parish Office between 11am and 12 noon on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday only on 01 8213218. June will put your name against the mass time slot of your choice. If that time slot is full, you will be offered an alternative mass time. She will also take your name and phone number for contact tracing for the HSE. If you phone and the line is engaged, please leave your name and contact number and she will phone you back after 12 noon on that day. We are looking forward to meeting everyone again.

To open for Mass/ Volunteers

* A big THANK YOU those who have already volunteered. We need volunteers every week to assist us in opening the church in accordance with guidelines.

* If you wish to volunteer to help we would be delighted to hear from you as soon as possible and we will arrange a training session for you in advance (don’t worry it’s not rocket science).
