Today is Mission Sunday. The theme this year is: ‘Together we can do more: Blessed are the peacemakers.’ Through World Mission Sunday and your generosity, Ireland helps to build other churches in poorer parts of the world and empower local people to form and sustain communities of faith. It also supports vulnerable children through educational, medical, welfare and formation programmes. In this pandemic year they need our help more than ever. You may hand in your Mission Sunday Collection envelope at any weekend Mass or at another time that is convenient for you.
Booking of Masses: anniversary Masses etc. continue to be offered as usual. Bookings may be made by contacting the sacristan or either of the priests of the parish.
Weekend Masses: Mass will be celebrated each Saturday evening in Dualla church at 6.30pm, and in Boherlahan church each Sunday at 11.00am. Unfortunately because of Covid 19 restrictions these Masses are not open to the public but you may come and park your car around either church and hear Mass.

Prayer of Pope Francis for protection from Coronavirus
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick. At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. (St Alphonsus de Liguori)
