IMPORTANT RE-OPENING INFORMATION: An Taoiseach announced the re-opening of churches from 10th May. The restrictions are as they were when we met around Christmas. Numbers remain below 50, with distanced seating (apart from families). Where possible, entrance and exit will be by different doors, sanitising will be available, and face masks are to be worn, inside and outside churches, with no unnecessary gathering before or after. We are not yet singing, and we receive the bread alone at Communion. If you are not feeling well, or been in contact with someone unwell, then do not attend. Some may still be very cautious about gatherings; there is no pressure on you to attend. You must do what is best for you and yours. Resources will still be made available. There follows the rota of services to the end of the month. Please note that Ascension Day will be celebrated in Kilmacthomas, and the first celebration in the Cathedral will appropriately be on Saint Carthage’s Day. The Zoom Services will continue, and the next Compline will be on the 6th June.
