Courtmacsherry and Barryroe Churches welcomed Bishop Fintan Gavin on Sunday 13 September

Bishop Fintan concelebrated Mass at the two churches with parish priest Father Dave O’Connell.

The last five months has challenged us quite like nothing else in living history...

Safety Angels?

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted so many parts of our lives as the authorities in this island of Ireland are challenged with difficult decisions on how to keep us safe and healthy whilst re-opening schools and businesses.

In light of the latest Government advice today (Tuesday 18 August 2020) please be reassured that Mass will continue with all safety procedures as planned.

Although restrictions have been tightened the current advice states indoor weddings and some religious services, such as Mass, are exempt from the new restrictions, meaning they can still take place with up to 50 people.

Just a reminder that the Church has clarified that during these extraordinary times there is no obligation to attend Mass in person.

We continue to invite you to join us for the livestream of Sunday Mass via this website.

Sunday and Saturday Mass Bookings reserved for Recently Deceased and First Anniversary only

You will be aware that due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines numbers of people able to attend Mass in person is restricted. Mass dedications for the deceased naturally attract increased numbers of people paying their respects. Weekend Masses on Saturdays and Sundays also draw larger congregations.

Taking this into account, Mass bookings for Sundays and Saturdays are reserved for the Recently Deceased and those remembering a First Anniversary only. However, all Mass bookings for weekdays can be accepted as usual. This arrangement will be required for the foreseeable future up and to the end of June 2021.

Thank you for your understanding.

Fr Dave
