Tue 1 Sept is World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. The theme has been evident in the writings and speeches of Pope Francis since the beginning of the pontificate. Let us all play our part in caring for the world we live in. 

Thu 3 Sept is the feast of St Gregory the Great (540-604), pope and doctor of the Church. A promoter of plainchant in the Church’s music, he is widely honoured as a patron of musicians.

Note for Collectors (Boherlahan & Dualla): as there are no collections during Mass, we invite the collectors normally rostered to help as stewards/ushers.

First Friday: Friday 4 September is the First Friday. Fr. Egan and Fr. Dunne will make the usual contact with the sick and the housebound. Mass and confessions at the usual times. 

Weekend Masses

  1. We ask those coming into the church to wear a mask.
  2. We again encourage you to follow the direction of the stewards/ushers at each Mass.
  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.
