Public Celebration of Masses

SUSPENSION OF CELEBRATION OF PUBLIC MASSES

13th March 2020

In line with national and governmental efforts to stem the spread of Covid-19, the decision is reluctantly taken to cancel all public Masses in the Diocese of Achonry including Vigil and Sunday Masses this weekend up to and including March 29th.

Priests will continue to celebrate Masses in their parishes but not open to the public. The intentions of all parishioners and all affected by the current difficult and challenging situation will be remembered.

Churches will be open during the days for personal visits and prayer. All faithful are asked to pray for a speedy and safe outcome to the difficulties posed by Covid-19.

Funerals, weddings and Baptisms will continue to be celebrated. However numbers attending will be restricted to the maximum 100, in accordance with instructions received.

Fr Dermot Meehan, Dioceasan Administrator of Achonry, calls for widespread prayer and asks that all people act for the common good and promotion of healthcare. He also asks for prayers for all on the frontline, engaging with those in most and direct need.

Webcams are installed in a number of our churches and Mass may be accessed in this way and through local radio. Please share in these Masses and be united in prayer.
