Sunday and Saturday Mass Bookings reserved for Recently Deceased and First Anniversary only

You will be aware that due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines numbers of people able to attend Mass in person is restricted. Mass dedications for the deceased naturally attract increased numbers of people paying their respects. Weekend Masses on Saturdays and Sundays also draw larger congregations.

Taking this into account, Mass bookings for Sundays and Saturdays are reserved for the Recently Deceased and those remembering a First Anniversary only. However, all Mass bookings for weekdays can be accepted as usual. This arrangement will be required for the foreseeable future up and to the end of June 2021.

Thank you for your understanding.

Fr Dave

Beginning on Tuesday 4 August Courtmacsherry Church is open for people to attend weekday Mass
