Bulletin - 15 March 2020

In the current emergency please pray for divine healing.

It is advisable for those who are feeling ill to avoid large crowds and congregations of people and so for the present there is a dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.

In this parish see schedule for Masses at front of bulletin.

When visiting homes Ministers of Holy Communion are to sanitise their hands and follow the instruction of each nursing home.

Please pray for, and pray with, those who may be isolated.

Daily Mass is aired at 10am daily on Radio Maria Ireland.  It is a radio station available on Freeview Channel 826 or 812. It broadcasts 24 hours daily.  EWTN is also a Catholic resource which can be accessed online.
