Message from Fr Michael.

Hi All,
We are happy to say that public Masses in our Parish resumed on Tuesday June 30th at 10.00am. It was great to have a congregation again.  The experience so far has been positive.  People have been patient and observed the social distancing.  There are a few obvious changes in seating and movement but the primary aspect of the Church as a place of prayer remains.  Anybody who wishes to attend weekdays Masses are welcome to do so. No booking required. Just arrive and sit in an allocated space.

Weekend Mass on July 4th/5th went well. People who had booked attended in good time and again adhered to the guidelines.  The following applies for the weekend Masses on July 11th/12th. Pre-booking is necessary.

You are asked to phone the office at 066-9151208 to let us know what Mass you would like to attend. Please phone from 2.00pm to 4.00pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday only. Give your name and number of persons (if more than 1). As the numbers are limited you might not get your first preference, we ask for your patience.
When you get to the Church you are asked to use the hand sanitizers provided and follow instructions from the stewards who will guide you to an assigned seating place.
For the first few weeks we will celebrate Mass in St Mary’s Church, Dingle only. Masses will be at the following times 6.15pm and 8.00pm on Saturdays and on Sundays at 10.00am and 11.30am. Your co-operation is very much appreciated.
In line with the Government guidelines, the following will apply:

  • Communion can only be received in the hands at this time.
  • Please sit in the designated spaces.
  • Families are asked to sit together.
  • You are asked not to kneel, just to sit and stand only.
  • Please place your offering for the offertory collection in the building fund boxes at the back of the churches as passing of baskets is not permitted.
  • Any changes or updates will be posted on the parish website.

Church doors will open at forty minutes before Mass and you are advised to attend Mass in good time. In the meantime, we continue to pray for those who’s lives and livelihoods have been effected by the Coronavirus, those who have died, those who suffer, those who mourn and those who help.  We to pray for each other.
God bless and keep safe. Fr Michael.

Great Realisation
It was a world of waste and wonder,
of poverty and plenty.
Back before we understood,
why hindsight’s 2020.

Come, Spirit who is our Light,
shine among the shadows within,
warm and transform our hearts.

Come, Spirit who makes a home in us,
draw us to the treasures of your dwelling,
Reveal to us the inner journey of love.

Come, Spirit, consuming Fire of Love.
Fill us with enthusiasm for your vision.
May the desire for truth be vibrant in us.

Come, Spirit, source of our Peace.
Deepen in us the action of peacemakers.
Heal the divisions that ravage the earth.

Come, Spirit of wisdom and insight.
Draw us toward your goodness and light.
Direct our growth and guide our ways.
