It is great to have people in Church for Masses and other services. Government invites Places of Worship to reopen for religious services at Level 3. This will be reviewed in January. This allows for up to 50 worshippers to attend Services. We resume with protective measures. It is very important to adhere to social distancing, (members of the same family can sit/stand together), face coverings, hand sanitation, one-way traffic in venue, and stewards will assist. Up to 25 mourners can attend Funeral Masses, up to 25 people can attend a wedding ceremony and reception. There is to be no congregation of people outside Churches before or after Services.
We love to have you at Mass again. However, if your health makes you vulnerable to Covid-19, if you have the virus, or are in close contact with someone who has the virus, then please stay at home and join us on radio or on webcam. In the past fourteen days 5 electoral areas in Donegal were among the ten areas with the highest incidence rates. Piltown electoral areas was number 9, and Callan Thomastown was number ten. So we all need to be vigilant.

We appreciate your understanding of the regulations that Government has put in place. They are for the good of all of us. Let’s continue to be observant, specially during these days leading up to and after Christmas.
We will continue to hold An Evening Prayer on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 5pm. Join us on 108fm, or on webcam.
