The Bishop of Limerick has announced that the Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation may be celebrated across the diocese from the beginning of July. Our Parish Priest, Fr. Mc Auliffe, has written to the parents of the children concerned through the schools.
The Sacrament of Baptism is available once again on a controlled basis. We can take one family at a time but attendance must be limited to six persons. Please contact Fr. Des McAuliffe, Fr. Tom Ryan or Margaret Clifford, to make arrangements. The times are on Saturdays at 5:00 pm and on Sundays at 12:15 pm.
We hope that parishioners will be able to participate in our ceremonies through the online presentations. Usually, people have a booklet to take home but not this year. For those who wish to reflect on the events of Holy Week, we will publish the introductory narratives, from Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Saturday, under Events, after each ceremony.
Once again, it is going to be difficult to distribute the collection envelopes to parishioners. They are now available in the Church, organised by area, some with the name of the usual distributor attached, some without. If you are able to deliver a batch in your home area, your help is much appreciated.
We continue to stream Mass at the usual times, daily and weekend, from the Parish Webcam. Funeral Masses are streamed live but recordings, when required, must be booked in advance.

This means that, after the special ceremonies of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we cannot have a congregation in Church for Mass until further notice. Attendance at Funerals and Weddings will also be severely limited.
