We need to sing again! A message from the Rector

Following the Taoiseach’s announcement yesterday evening, we will once more be singing hymns!

As well as retaining our obligation to wear masks, we will be maintaining our policy of only using every second pew, as we have ample space to accommodate everyone. We will no longer need to collect contact tracing details

Other Covid protocols which we will be continuing to apply in the church to keep us all safe:

  • Please sanitise your hands on arrival.
  • The order of service will be on the screens but books will be available for those who ask.
  • Holy Communion will be administered in both kinds- wafers will be used instead of bread, and individual communion glasses will be used.
  • Collection plates will not be passed around – baskets will be available at the back of the church.
  • Church doors will be left open during the service for ventilation purposes.
  • Pews will be disinfected in between services.

Remember, all our services will be broadcast live on our parish website through our webcam and the 10.30 service will also be accessible later on the website and our Facebook page, so nobody should feel an obligation to attend in person if they are nervous about doing so.
