Update on Mass Arrangements

Health and Safety during Pandemic -

Public Mass for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday 15th August will be celebrated at 11am.

We will celebrate public Sunday Mass, observing restrictions on numbers and social distancing, on Saturdays at 6pm & Sundays at 10.30 am. Masses will also continue to be transmitted via Webcam.

Due to the 2-metre social distancing rule, there will be limited spaces in the church. When we reach capacity, we will have to close the doors. 

Weekday Mass at 10 am is celebrated behind closed doors on Monday to Friday – available via Webcam. Public weekday Mass will resume at a later date, to be announced.

Our church is open for private prayer Monday to Friday at 10.30am to 3.30pm, and Sunday 11.30am to 4pm. The church is NOT open for private prayer 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.

The Pastoral Centre is closed for all activities.

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.

Today’s Mass Readings .
Dear Guardian Angel, go for me to the church, there kneel down at Mass for me. At the Offertory, take me to God and offer Him my service: What I am, what I have, offer as my gift. At the Consecration, with your seraphic strength, adore my Saviour truly present, praying for those who have loved me, for those who have offended me, and for those now deceased, that the blood of Jesus may purify them all. During Holy Communion bring me the Body and Blood of Jesus uniting Him with me in spirit, so that my heart may become His dwelling place. Plead with Him, that through His sacrifice all people throughout the world may be saved. When the Mass ends, bring home to me and to every home, the Lord’s blessing. Amen.
