Coronavirus – COVID 19 HSE Guidelines

The HSE has issued guidelines for religious services in the light of the present Coronavirus.  The Diocese of Killala is adopting them and will be implemented until further notice.

  • Sign of Peace – the giving of the customary Sign of Peace will be omitted until further notice.
  • Holy Communion – Everyone will be administered into the hand only and NOT onto the tongue.
  • Only the Celebrant will drink from the Chalice. Other priests and Ministers of the Eucharist will receive from the Chalice by Intinction.
  • Holy Water Fonts – these will be left empty until further notice.
  • Members of the congregation are asked to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when they cough or sneeze. People who are ill should not attend religious services at present.

Thank you to all our Parishioners for your cooperation in this matter.
