Support Team for Implementation of Covid 19 guidelines for our parish church. Thanks to all the volunteers who have come forward to help implement the new Covid guidelines so we can all go to mass safely. However, in order to adhere to the strict guidelines we urgently need more volunteers to help out. Please contact Siobhan at the Parish Office if you are interested. Your help will be much appreciated.

 

Returning to Celebrate Mass

It is fantastic that we can gather for Mass - you have been waiting from mid March since last being around the altar of the Lord to receive the nourishment of Holy Communion, the Body of Christ. What a blessing it will be!! But it will be different for a while and we need the help of everyone to make it happen.

How many can attend? We will be adhering to distancing guidelines, and so this will reduce the capacity of the Churches significantly for each Mass. We ask people to come early as we will need to guide you to the designated places, and it will be first come, first served. It may mean that people may come but be unable to enter due to distancing guidelines, so we ask for your understanding on this. The Sunday Obligation to attend Mass has been waived for the moment, and so we ask that you might come during the week instead of the weekend times.

Personal responsibility: we ask the help of everyone in reopening - to use the hand sanitiser at the doors; hand and cough hygiene etiquette; to keep the distancing on the way into Church, in the pews, at Communion time, and on leaving; to follow the direction of stewards who are there to help.

Stewards: We need the help of stewards to guide people to the available places. Can you help with this? Could you kindly contact Siobhan at the Parish Office with your details, and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Communion Time: the Priest and Eucharistic Ministers will be using hand sanitiser before distributing Communion, they will be wearing a face visor, stewards will help guide people to keep distance when approaching, you will be asked to receive Holy Communion in your hands.

Offertory Collection: The basket will not be passed around, instead there will be collection boxes at the three doors for your contribution and support of the parish.

It will be unusual for a while, but together we will make it work: Much of the above will take a little getting used to, but it is all possible—after all, our focus is the chance to return together for Mass, and we will all do whatever it takes to get us around the Lord’s Altar to receive the Bread of Life. SEE YOU SOON!! THANKS BE TO GOD.

Healing Hour of Prayer for physical, emotional and spiritual healing next Wednesday 3 – 4pm via Macroom Church Webcam.

Reflection

Tranquil Moments.

Steal away to some quite corner

Steal away for just awhile

It heals the body, soul and spirit

And gives a true and happy smile.

Take a walk and see the beauty

Mountains high “and breathe the air,”

Thank the Lord for all creation

He allows for us to share

In the stillness of a corner

Or majestic mountains tall

He provides us tranquil moments,

Hears the smallest voice and call.

In serenity and beauty

Stillness of the night or day,

Ask believing in God’s promise –

Ask believing…….steal away.
