LATEST UPDATE ON CHURCH OPENING
The Government has announced a return to Level 3 of their COVID-19 Resilience and National Recovery Plan, beginning on 1st December. They have also announced an easing of some of the Level 3 restrictions on a phased basis until 6th January.
This means that CHURCHES WILL BE OPEN FOR PUBLIC MASS.
We will be resuming our normal Sunday and weekday Masses from the Vigil Mass on Saturday 5th December. Masses will remain online until then.

Our online Mass will resume on Fridays at 10.30am
starting on Friday 11th December.
Please remember that we need to keep the church doors open for ventilation, especially when we gather for Mass - so make sure you’re wrapped up nice and warm!
Please remember to wear a face mask too!
CHURCH OPENING TIMES FOR PRIVATE PRAYER
Although our churches cannot be open at the moment for us to gather together for Mass, you are welcome to call in for private prayer. We kindly ask that you wear a face mask at all times in the church, use the hand sanitiser as you enter and leave, stay within the designated area and avoid using the benches, and try to keep your visit as short as possible. If you feel unwell or have any of the COVID symptoms we ask you to please stay at home.

Baptisms: Due to recent level 3 restrictions and current level 5 restrictions unfortunately all confirmed Baptisms had to be cancelled. Once restrictions lift, all cancelled Baptisms will be rescheduled on next available dates. For new Baptism requests, please click here to complete a Baptism Application Form and send to the office by email or post along with a copy of the child's Birth Certificate. New Requests will be allocated dates once all rescheduled Baptisms have taken place. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the office.
Every year Trócaire asks for your help during Lent to fund lifesaving programmes around the world. This year, of course, it was not possible to return Trócaire boxes through schools or parishes in the usual way. This is the worst possible timing coming just as the world’s poorest people need us most. Therefore, Trócaire are appealing to you to return your Lenten donation.
Simply count or estimate what is in your box and donate in the following ways:
1. Online at www.trocaire.org
2. By phone: 1850 408 408
3. By post to Trócaire, Maynooth, Co. Kildare
The contents of each and every Trócaire box, no matter how small, come together to make a significant difference. This virus knows no borders, but neither does our compassion.
PARISH FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS
We are aware that these are very difficult and worrying times for all of us. Our Parish income has suffered as a result of the imposed restrictions due to the Coronavirus. If you are able to offer some regular financial support, via Standing Order, we would be most grateful.
Those who very kindly contribute to the Family Offering via the parish envelopes may wish to continue using the envelopes by collecting them at home and bringing them back to the parish when it is safe to do so. Alternatively, you may wish to consider replacing your envelope donation to contribute with a standing order.
Standing Order Forms can be downloaded and returned to the Pastoral Area Office. Many thanks.
IMPORTANT Garda Vetting Announcement
If you have recently completed a Garda vetting form but have not received or replied to an email from the National Vetting Bureau, please contact the Pastoral Area Office. (The email may have found its way into your Junk or Spam box) It is vitally important that the Vetting process is completed as soon as possible. Please let us know if you need any help with this.
