Bulletin - 21 June 2020

12th Sunday of the Year                                21 June 2020

 

All are welcome to listen from their homes to daily 10 00am Mass available on CB radio and live on Facebook (Ballymena Kirkinriola Parish)

There will be a period of Adoration every Thursday morning after Mass – 10 30am-12noon.

Vigil Mass 6 00pm and Sunday 10 00am will also be broadcast next week.

 

Funeral services or Requiem Masses will now 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
