Return to Public Worship

Following the recent government announcement, public worship will resume from Monday 10th May.  This is a very welcome announcement as we have found the last four months of not being able to gather with people for Eucharist in our parish since St. Stephen’s Day very difficult. 

As we enter summertime and outside temperatures increase it will be possible to have much better ventilation in churches which we now understand to be very important in stopping the spread of the virus.

In order for public worship to resume along the same lines as before 26th December last the following measures continue to apply:

  • 2m social distancing guidelines adhered to (members of the same household can sit/stand close together)
  • Wearing of face coverings
  • Separate points of entrance and exit clearly marked
  • No gathering of people outside the church before and after Mass


Funerals

From 10th May up to 50 mourners may attend a Funeral Mass.

Weddings

From 10th May up to 50 people can attend the celebration of the Sacrament of Marriage in a church. 

Baptisms

Arrangements can be made for the Sacrament of Baptism to be celebrated from 10th May with those immediate family members present to include parents, siblings, sponsors and grandparents.  

Confessions

Confessions available from 6pm to 7pm every Wednesday in the Sacred Heart Church, Glounthaune.

First Confession

Arrangements to follow.

Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation

Unfortunately it’s not possible to make arrangements for the celebration of First Holy Communion and Confirmation at this time and in order to avoid disappointment no dates can be proposed by parishes, not even provisionally.
