Continuing  Coronavirus Measures

Dear Parishioner

As you are aware the number of coronavirus cases  continues to rise and the Government has announced that the whole country will now enter phase 5 of the Governments COVID-19 Resilience and National Recovery Plan. The immediate implication of this is that all religious services will stay online, with places of worship remaining open for private prayer only.

Therefore all public Masses in our church are suspended for at least another two weeks.

Funeral Masses  will continue to be celebrated. Attendance at  funerals will be limited to 25.

Mass will be celebrated daily in the parish church as per the following schedule:

Monday to Saturday 9am and 10am.

Sunday: Vigil mass at 6:30 pm Saturday and 9 am and 10:30 am Sunday morning.

No congregation can be present. These Masses will be streamed on the parish webcam and the parish radio.

Mass Intentions will be Prayed for and are still available for booking.

The Parish Office Will Remain Open – only one person may enter at any one time- please use the hand sanitiser at the door- please wear a face covering.

The church will be open for private prayer as per the following schedule:

Monday to Friday after the 10 am morning Mass until 4 pm

Saturday after the 10 am morning Mass until 6 pm

Sunday after the 10:30 am morning Mass until 4 pm.

When you are visiting the church for private prayer we ask that you follow HSE guidelines with regard to social distancing, sanitising your hands and wearing face masks is essential.

We ask that in the interest of hygiene and the safety of ALL parishioners that you do not handle or kiss the many statues around the Church, the Altar or any other items in the Church.

Stay Safe and God Bless


My Jesus,

I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.

I love you above all things

and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.

Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,

come spiritually into my soul

so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.
