Return to Public Masses: The government has allowed churches to open for public mass from Monday 10th May. We will announce details next weekend. Again we will be asking for volunteers to help with stewarding when we resume.
Confirmation & First Holy Communion: According to the latest government guidelines the celebration of the sacraments Confirmation & First Holy Communion are not to take place in May. It would seem that June is also doubtful but we await further clarification later. We encourage children and their families to continue preparing at home by saying their prayers and listening to mass online.
Easter Clergy Collection: A further €865 has been contributed to this collection bringing the total to €21,445. Thanks to all and to those who have contributed online.

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament: will continue on Wed from 3.00pm – 6.00pm in St. Michael’s Church. You are invited to visit on that day and spend a little time in the Lord’s Presence and pray for yourselves and for one another.
