Kilcummin Notes 15/05/2020


We are delighted that Bishop Ray has announced that we can reopen Churches for personal prayer from Wed May 20th (but we will not have congregations for Mass for some time yet sadly). But we still need to be prudent and exercise caution and good hygiene practices. We will have regular cleaning and have sanitiser dispensers in place. As people are doing for visiting other places, so also it is encouraged to wash your hands before leaving home and on return, using gloves or mask if you wish, being aware to touch as few surfaces as possible, allowing at least 2 metres distance to others, being patient with others walking the aisles and not to congregate at candle shrines etc. While sadly we still do not have public Masses, please join with everyone in the pastoral area for Masses at the Cathedral on the webcam via, praying for God’s protection for us, for our loved ones, and for our society in these positive steps to increase movement.
