Church Reopening for Mass

Published on June 27, 2020

Our church will reopen for public mass on Tuesday 30th June. We warmly welcome everybody back. We are concerned for the safety of everybody and it is important to remember that the obligation to attend Mass in person was lifted at the start of the pandemic and will continue for some time to come. If you do not feel safe or confident coming to Mass in person, you are most welcome to join us for Mass via our new Parish WebCam

Mass will be at the normal times:

  • Mon to Friday 10 am
  • Saturday 6pm (Vigil mass for Sunday)
  • Sunday 10am and 11:30 am

This will be subject to the Covid-19 regulations imposed by the Government and overseen by the Archdiocese of Dublin. Due to Social Distancing requirements, Church capacity will be reduced to accommodate 50 people at Mass. Please observe the social distancing required on entering the Church and use the sanitizers provided at the entrance of the Church. Designated stewards will guide you to the appointed seats.

Please enter the Church through the main door only and exit by the side doors.

Please note that there is No Obligation to attend Sunday Mass at this time. if you so wish you can attend a weekday Mass. Please consider this option in order to facilitate as many people as possible to attend Mass at least once a week.

Volunteers are needed to help implement the social distancing and sanitizing required by the Government and the to sanitize and clean the Church after each Mass.
