Covid 19 Measures updated 18th September 2020

Because the healthcare restrictions in Dublin have moved to Level 3, public Mass is suspended for the duration of the new restrictions.

All of our Masses, weekday and weekend, will be celebrated and streamed online from Sts. Alphonsus and Columba church only:

Sts. Alphonsus and Columba church remains open for personal prayer until 7.30pm every day and the Church of the Apostles until 4pm every day. It is essential that a safe physical distance of 2 meters is scrupulously observed at all times in the church and in the church grounds. Surfaces in the church are disinfected at least 3 times during the day.

Confirmations scheduled and booked for September have had to be postponed.

The Level 3 restrictions are set to last until 9th October (www.gov.ie/en/publication/cf1f3-special-measures-in-place-for-dublin/). We hope that our Confirmation ceremonies for 10th and 17th October will be allowed to go ahead, but if the restrictions are extended, they will have to be postponed as well. The parish will contact the parents and guardians affected as soon as any change is announced by the government.

Funeral Masses are unfortunately restricted to 25 mourners and the guidelines on safe social distancing need to be followed. We would ask neighbours and friends, please, not to congregate in the church grounds.

Weddings are restricted to 25 participants.

Baptisms are postponed for the duration of the new restrictions.

May God bless and protect us all. Fr Tom

We still need volunteers to disinfect our churches (half an hour per week) and to act as stewards.

Thank you, and God bless you all.
