Covid 19 Measures updated 20th Octoober 2020
Since the healthcare restrictions have been increased to level 5, all our Masses, weekday and weekend, are live-streamed as usual from Sts Alphonsus & Columba church, and are best accessed from the parish website.
Sts Alphonsus & Columba church remains open every day for prayer until 6pm (despite the scaffolding & building works); the Church of the Apostles is open every day until 4pm.
Please feel free to come into our churches to light a candle and say a prayer.
The safe social distance of 2 meters needs to be observed in the church and in the church grounds, and facial coverings need to be worn. Please sanitise your hands on entering and exiting the church.
St Stephen’s Church, Killiney will remain closed during the current restrictions.
Funeral Masses and Weddings are limited to 25 participants.
We had hoped to be able to offer Confirmation ceremonies in November, but that is not possible under the restrictions. If the restrictions return to Level 3 in December, we will still not be allowed to hold Confirmation ceremonies. We would hope that the sacrament of Confirmation can be offered to small groups in the new year if it is safe to do so.
Baptisms, Baptism courses, and Confessions remain postponed.
All oue Masses are celebrated online at the usual times
Monday - Friday @ 10am
Saturday vigil @ 6pm
Sunday @ 10am & 12noon
