Céad Míle Fáilte: We welcome you back to Mass this weekend. We are so grateful for your loyalty, your generosity and your goodness. It will be a bit different from what we were used to. The following are some of the new arrangements that we are asked to respect:

(a) The total number allowed in each church is 50.

(b) We ask you to wear a face covering inside the church, and to respect physical distancing in the church and its environs.

(c) We ask you to sanitize your hands as you enter and leave the church.

(d) A collection box will be in the porch of the Church for collections and contributions during each Mass.

(e) 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. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Prayer to St Oliver Plunkett

God our Father, you filled Saint Oliver with your spirit of fortitude, enabling him to feed your people with his word and to lay down his life for the faith; at his intercession keep us strong in the same true faith and help us to proclaim it everywhere. Amen. 

(from The Roman Missal, Memorial of St Oliver Plunkett)
