CHURCH OPEN FOR PRIVATE PRAYER: CLOSED FOR PUBLIC MASS
Thank God we were open for Christmas Day, even if it was for a limited number of people.
There are so many more who would have chosen to join us for Mass at Christmas, but we were completely booked out: even if some decided not to take up their booking,
We are back to celebrating Mass behind closed doors, again. We can only look forward with hope at being able to re-open soon, when the circumstances allow.
THANKS FOR GENROSITY AT CHRISTMAS
We are very grateful to all who were so generous at Christmas: All our helpers and volunteers, for preparing the Church for Christmas and for ensuring that we could welcome people to a safe and clean environment. Thanks to all who were generous with Christmas Offerings and Christmas Dues: we depend on your offerings to pay the bills.
MASS ON WEBCAM
Thanks to our generous sponsor – Parishioner Bob Deegan and to MCN who provide technical support- The Webcam facilitates live transmission of Masses etc. here in Claddagh Church. While it is a great facility, I know most people would prefer to be able to attend Mass in person.
FUNERALS, WEDDINGS ETC.
Only with very limited numbers at present. No new Baptisms can be booked in until restrictions are lifted.
PARISH VISITS, SICK CALLS ETC
House visits are banned at present, and this prevents us from normal Parish calls or visits.
We will respond to any ‘sick calls’. Please phone 091 582884
Re-opens on Monday 4th January.
Our thanks to Alan Fallon for his technical assistance with material for our website.
