Public Mass will resume in our parish tomorrow Monday at 10am but for the time being we ask that you pre-book your attendance at Mass so that we do not exceed the government limit of 50 persons. This is not an ideal arrangement but unfortunately we have to be patient with current circumstances. Pre-booking of Mass attendance may be done through the parish office. Livestreaming of our Masses will continue on our parish website for the time being.
For the time being public Masses will take place in our parish every weekday at 10am in St Patrick’s church only. Next Saturday evening the Vigil Mass will take place in St Patrick’s Church at 7.30pm. Next Sunday and for the foreseeable Sunday’s, all Sunday Masses will take place in St Patrick’s Church (and none in Queen of Peace Church). This is to facilitate the stewarding and seat arrangement that needs to take place. Next Sunday therefore the public Masses here in St Patrick’s Church will be at 8.30am, 10.30am and 12 noon.
Ministers of the word and ministers of holy communion will not be needed for the time being.
Stewards will be employed at our Masses to assist people with seating arrangements and social distancing.
The parish office has now re-opened to visit or phone (Monday to Friday, 9.30 am to 12 Noon). Please use the parish office to pre-book your attendance at Mass.
Even though public Masses are now resuming across the country the moral obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days is still, for the time being, dispensed, because the pandemic is still ongoing.
The sacrament of Confession has resumed in our parish. Yesterday Fr Brian and myself spent a long time hearing confessions at 12 o clock in the Blue Nuns Parish Centre where social distancing was applied. Confession will take place again at the Blue Nuns Parish Centre next Saturday at 12 noon.
The Sacrament of Baptism has now resumed and parents may contact the parish office to arrange same.
First Holy Communion ceremonies in May have been postponed. New dates will not be set until there is more clarity about the end of the Covid 19 restrictions. Thank you for your patience.
Each Day, 10am, Holy Mass (preceded by Rosary at 9.40am)
Sundays, 10.30am Mass (preceded by Rosary at 10.10am)
Sundays, 7.30pm Benediction
