Due to the resurgence of COVID-19 the government has decided to impose Level 3 restrictions on the whole of the country. There's a number of implications for ourselves. Church services cease publicly and move online. A maximum of 25 people may attend a wedding or funeral and baptisms are postponed.

Thanks to all who worked so hard over the last three months to provide Mass in a safe environment. We hope to return when it is safe to do so. The churches will remain open for private prayer.

In view of the poor internet signal in places,
I propose to offer Mass each day along with the Mass on RTÉ News Now at 10.30am each morning. I will try to cover received Mass intentions as laid out below. I haven’t got to check this out with the families involved, but if you ring me at the above number we can reschedule the intentions, if necessary.
