  1. We ask those coming into the church to wear a mask.

  3. Please sanitize your hands entering and leaving the church and at all times respect physical distancing.
  4. The Collection Box is in the porch of the church if you wish to make a contribution.
  5. Holy Communion will be distributed inside and outside the church after Mass has finished.
  6. At the end of each Mass, we are hoping for volunteers to help in sanitizing the pews and seats. Some cloths and sanitizing liquid are available in the church. If people brought a wipe and sanitizer with them and looked after the pew they are using this would be very helpful. 
  7. In the porches of the churches there is a copy book where we invite you to sign your name.
  8. We ask everyone to use good common sense in respecting all the protocols. We thank you for your wonderful cooperation thus far.

First Holy Communion Dates 2020: 

  • Dualla NS Sat 19 Sept 11.00am at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Dualla;

  • Little Flower NS Ballytarsna Sat 3 Oct 11.00am at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Dualla. 

Current government Covid-19 guidelines will have to be respected in these celebrations.  Unfortunately for these celebrations we are limited to 50 people. As a result we ask that the First Communicant and their parents plus school personnel attend the ceremony in the church. All other siblings, grandparents and friends are welcome to stay in their cars outside the church during the ceremony. We also encourage parents to keep an eye on the numbers attending the family celebration afterwards. We know that we can rely on your goodwill and understanding in making these requests. 

Month of Creation: This starts 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. Christians worldwide are encouraged to use this time to commit themselves to making greater efforts to care for creation. This commitment is both spiritual and practical. Called ‘Season of Creation’, it is a time for prayer, commitment and action for our common home and on behalf of our common human family.  How can we play our part in this initiative?
