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) We again encourage you to follow the direction of the stewards/ushers at 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. 

(f) We remind people of mature age of the option to drive their car into Bianconi Park in Boherlahan, or to either side of the church in Dualla. 

(g) We hope to have one Holy Communion Minister with the priest at each Mass.

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

(i) We will not be availing of altar servers until a later date. 

(j) Missalettes cannot be used at present due to Government safety guidelines. 

(k) We ask everybody to use common sense and please God everything will work out well. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament: In Boherlahan the Adoration will be in the main Church on Mondays 10.30-11.30 am and 2.00-3.00pm.

Receiving Holy Communion: We will distribute Holy Communion after each Mass. We will conclude Mass, give the final blessing and those not receiving Communion may leave starting from the back of the church. Then those who are receiving may come forward in single file and keeping physical distance. Communion will be received in the hand. The celebrant and minister of the Eucharist will wear a face covering. 

Fourth Collection: This will be taken up this weekend. It would traditionally be for Education of Priests. All collections help to meet our diocesan targets. Your support is greatly appreciated. 

First Friday (4 June): The priests of the parish will make individual contact with the housebound during this week. 

Weekday and Weekend Masses: Masses in Boherlahan at 10.00am Mon to Fri; Dualla Mon to Fri 9.30am. Weekend Masses in both churches at the usual times. 

Booking of Masses: anniversary Masses etc. continue to be offered in both churches as usual. Bookings may be made by contacting the sacristan or either of the priests of the parish. 

Dualla-Ballytarsna-Boherlahan Athletic Club will host the Fit4Life programme commencing on Monday 31 May at 8 pm in the community field, Dualla and will continue for eight weeks.
