COVID-19 and Public Masses

Date of Notice: 6th October 2020.

Updated: 6th October 2020.

In accordance with Level 3 of the Irish government Covid-19 plan, there will be no public Masses at the Church of Saints Peter and Paul’s from 7th October until further notice. The Church will, however, be open for private prayer on Mondays to Saturdays inclusive from 10am to 4pm and on Sundays from 11.30am to 12.30pm. People attending for private prayer are kindly requested to observe entrance and exit signage, seating arrangements and use the hand sanitisers provided.

In relation to the 7pm Mass on Sundays: The parish regrets it is not in a position to recommence this Mass until further notice. The parish is obliged to take this decision for two reasons. Firstly, it is not possible to provide adequate social distancing within the church for all people who habitually attend the Sunday 7pm Mass. The second reason is that the parish does not wish to be selective at the entrance and turn people away or operate advance seat reservation for attendance at that Mass. The parish thanks you for your understanding of the difficult situation it finds itself in relation to the 7pm Sunday Mass at the present time and which it regrets deeply. Confessions usually scheduled at 6.30pm on Sundays will also not recommence until return of the 7pm Sunday Mass.
