What is the Impact of Level 3?
Following the decision of the Government to introduce Level 3 restrictions, Masses will continue to be celebrated but without a congregation from 7th October 2020 until further notice.
Daily Masses continue to be broadcast locally on radio 106.5fm
- 9.30am weekdays
- 11.30am on Saturday
- 11.15am on Sundays.
Church is Open to the Public: The church is open for private prayer from 12 noon to 6pm each day.
- Funerals and weddings are restricted to 25 people attending
- Baptisms may not be celebrated
Envelopes for the Autumn offerings are available at the back of the church and may be returned to the parish office. The Parish Office is open from 10 – 1pm weekdays.
Sunday 18th October is World Mission Sunday and if you wish to make a donation you can leave your offering in the Parish Centre.
The introduction of Level 3 for the whole country brings back some restrictions, making changes to our lives. Our ability to be present in person in our parish church is impacted, but there are still many ways available to us to still be present in celebrating Mass and continuing to grow in our prayer life.
