It is good news that as the country reopens further, from Monday 6th September the numbers permitted by the State to gather for Church Ceremonies is extended to 50% of venue capacity. Our stewards, to whom we’re very grateful for their service, will continue to guide us in this regard. Meanwhile, we remember that we still need to observe social distancing inside and outside our Churches. Facemasks must be worn at all Masses and ceremonies. Please use the hand sanitizer as you enter the Church. For Communion in the Parish Church, please continue to observe the one-way system – up the centre aisle and down the sides, beginning with those in the centre aisle. Communion is given in the hand only. And please take your copy of the Mass leaflet home.
The National School Day begins at 9.10am this year, rather than 9.30am, and we ask all to take good care entering and departing Church grounds.
