The Vigil Mass at 6pm is to be deferred for the time being. Sunday Masses at 9am & 11am can be viewed live on the Parish Webcam.
As our church has reopened, the Catholic Papers are again available there. You will find them on the table near the side (EXIT) door. As we know that many will have missed their favourite Catholic Papers, please spread the word.
Catholic Papers: While St Michael’s Church remains closed, some Catholic Papers will be available at Blackrock Circle K Service Station. We are very grateful for Charlie Murphy’s very willing co-operation in this regard. For any enquiries regarding the papers, please contact Barry at 086 1929263.
Weekday Masses discontinued after Monday March 16th
Bishop Fintan Gavin has written to all priests in the diocese requesting “that the celebration of a public mass with a congregation be discontinued also on weekdays”, until further notice.
“In light of the continuing measures to protect public health announced by the Government including the requirement that the attendance at any event
ALL WEEKEND MASSES ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
WEEKDAY MASSES WILL CONTINUE AS USUAL
WEEKEND MASSES ARE AVAILABLE VIA THE WEBCAM AT
6pm VIGIL, SUNDAY 9am & 11am
I write to update my earlier e-mail in regard to weekend Masses. The Government announcement earlier today requires that the attendance at any event including Mass must not exceed 100 people. While today’s Norms from the Irish Bishops’ Conference allowed for the continuation of weekend Masses, it is not feasible to restrict the numbers in this way.
In light of
The Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference statement on liturgical considerations in the context of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) (11/3/2020)
Current Flu Season – COVID -19
Those who have flu are under no obligation to go to Mass.
If you have the flu, please stay at home, rest, stay well hydrated
and, if necessary, seek your doctor’s help.
Mass is available via the internet on the Parish website
Sign of Peace: Due to the number of colds and flu
