Public Mass – Covid 19 Restrictions

Due to Government/HSE Regulations, the following applies to the celebration of Mass in our parish until at least late July:
No more than 50 people can be present, includes the priest.
All the requirements of social-distancing must be observed.
While our Parish has always been blessed with a very strong tradition of volunteering, at the present time it will not be possible to facilitate the following ministries at Mass:

  • Sacristans
  • Acolytes
  • Servers
  • Ministers of Holy Communion
  • Readers
  • Choir
  • Musicians
  • Collectors
  • Counters

A strict regime of sanitisation will be in place.
Directions given by stewards and signage must be respected and observed.
Particular care must be taken when entering and leaving the church to respect the rules of ‘social distancing’ and to take personal responsibility to ensure that we neither put our own health, or the health of anybody else, at risk.
Face-Masks and gloves may be worn.
Holy Water will not be used.
Arrangements will be made for the safe distribution of Holy Communion. Sermons will be brief!
We continue to be gentle and kind to each other in these exceptional times.
