Statement from Bishop Noel Treanor – 4 June

With immediate effect, Funeral services or Requiem Masses will not be resumed across

the Diocese of Down and Connor, while observing the limits on the numbers

attending to 10 mourners and observing social distancing regulations. 


All Saints’ Church is open for private prayer from 12 noon to 3pm and
6 00pm to 8 00pm every day except Saturdays, which will be a deep cleaning day.

We have a team of volunteers who will assist us all initially to follow the new protocol as laid out by the Down and Connor Diocese. We would ask that you follow any guidance given. It will be great to see some faces back in the church again. STAY SAFE PRAY SAFE


Spiritual Communion for healing of the sick

Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the most Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You and unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You, and may your healing grace fall from Heaven, a blanket of grace to heal the sick, stemming the flow of loss of life and putting an end to this terrible disease.  Amen

Then by all means paint,

And that voice will be silenced.                                        Vincent Van Gogh
