Covid-19 (Coronavirus) – Guidelines for Attending Services

Please note that for the foreseeable future, Holy Communion will be administered in one kind only, i.e. the bread. Only the Celebrant will receive from the Chalice. The celebrant will use hand sanitiser before administering the bread.

The ministers will not shake hands with people as they leave the church, as is their custom, but will remain available at the door to greet and converse with people.

If you have symptoms like a cough, sneezing or a fever, you should refrain from attending services and avail of the televised or streamed services instead.

As per all the HSE guidelines, good hand and respiratory hygiene is essential to prevent the widespread transmission of the virus.

As the situation evolves and new guidelines/directions are given by the HSE, decisions will be made about whether certain events will go ahead or be postponed. Please note that there will be NO service in St. Patrick’s Nursing Home, Baldoyle, until further notice. Please continue to pray for all who are affected in any way by this outbreak of Covid-19.
