Update on Mass Arrangements
coronavirus

Health and Safety during Pandemic -

Sunday Mass will be celebrated in public on Saturdays at 6pm and Sundays at 10.30am. Masses will also be transmitted via Webcam.

Weekday Mass on Mon, Tues, Thurs, Friday at 10am is open to the public. When there is a funeral, please be particularly mindful that Covid-19 protective measures such as social distancing still apply. Mass will also be available via Webcam.

Our church will be open for private prayer after Mass until 3pm, except on Saturday. Please observe the requests on the notice board as you enter and social distancing at all times.

The Bishops of Ireland advise that, in the current emergency, all are dispensed from the obligation to physically attend Sunday Mass.

Eucharistic Adoration on Saturdays has been suspended for now.

For those joining in Mass from home, by making an Act of Spiritual Communion we express our faith in Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist and ask him to unite himself with us. This prayer was written by St Alphonsus de Liguori:
My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Prayer for Christian Unity
.
Creator of light,
illumine our path by the light of Christ who moves before us and leads us.
May he be a beacon for our pilgrimage.
Enlighten us and dwell within us.
We thank you for the gift of that unfading Star, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
Heal our divisions and draw us closer to the Light that we may find our unity in him. Amen.
           * * *
Even in the greatest darkness, God’s light is with us. Most perfectly, in the fullness of time, God sends Jesus Christ, who is the guiding light for all nations, the glory of God in the world, the source of divine light and life. The way ahead into unity with one another, into closer union with Christ, is not always clear. In our earnest attempts to build unity ourselves it is all too easy to lose sight of this fundamental message of the scriptures: that God does not abandon his people even in their failures and divisiveness. This is God’s message of hope for the whole world. God guides people of all kinds, by the light of the star, to where Christ, the light of the world, is to be found.
