Resumption of Public Mass

Public Mass has resumed. Our stewards will be on duty, and we would ask you please to continue wearing facial masks, sanitising your hands, and keeping the safe social distance of 2 meters, both inside and outside the church.

Numbers for public Mass, Weddings, and funerals are capped at 50 participants and Confirmation and First Holy Communion are not allowed at this time.


The full schedule of weekday & weekend Masses will continue to be streamed on the internet.

Registration for Confirmation 2021 and First Holy Communion 2021

Parish Registration for Confirmation 2021 is closing shortly and parents or guardians are asked to download the Registration Form from the parish website (under Forms) and to return it to the Parish Office at the Parochial House, Sts Alphonsus & Columba church, Ballybrack.

The parish-based formation programme, our Confirmation Clubs, to help prepare for Confirmation will be on the 1st Sunday each month and will begin by webcam on Sunday June 6th at 9.30am.

No dates for Confirmation or First Holy Communion will be set until the Archbishop gives permission. Confirmation will be offered first to those who registered in 2020, hopefully in the summer. The parish will contact parents and guardians soon about dates & numbers of participants.

Parish Registration for First Holy Communion 2021 & our Communion Clubs will begin in June, and First Holy Communion 2021 will hopefully take place in the autumn.
