Message updated 27th September 2020. Mass continues on the same schedule established post lockdown since July 2020. Our vigil Mass is at 7.30 p.m. in St. Brigid’s Dunleer and Mass in Dromin is at 10.30 a.m. and Dunleer at 11.30 a.m on Sunday. No Mass in St Kevin’s church during this period of Covid19 due to space restrictions. Numbers are restricted for all Masses currently at Level 2 of the Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with Covid-19 issued by the government. Please adhere to the latest public health advice and guidelines at all times. The elderly and anyone who may be vulnerable should consider waiting until it is safer to return to Mass. Daily Mass is as usual at 10 a.m. in Dunleer. The livestreaming of Mass in St. Brigid’s will continue for those who choose to view Mass at home.
Baptisms will go ahead every Sunday with limited numbers (CLICK HERE to find the baptismal registration form to download). The Dromin patrún for 2020 will not go ahead however, Mass will be offered for the souls buried in Dromin at the Mass in St. Brigid’s Dunleer on Sunday 11th of October. Due to restrictions on space we invite those who would not normally attend this Mass to tune in by livestream instead. Dunleer and Dromin churches remain open each day for private prayer. The churches have been equipped with hand sanitising points at entry and with wipes for cleaning down the pews on entering and/or leaving. There are also stickers indicating the spacing that is required for public safety and we follow the public health advice on wearing face coverings. We recommend that the vulnerable might consider attending weekday Mass in place of Sunday for the time being. Mass leaflets have been reintroduced on the basis that people take the leaflet home with them or place it in the bin for disposal on exiting the church, they must not be left on the seats.
At Mass, communion continues to be distributed silently and parishioners to date have shown great deference in allowing space and diligent in avoiding the formation of queues so that people are not brushing by each other unnecessarily. Those who receive on the tongue are asked to come up last and to myself rather than the Eucharistic Minister. Please allow the collectors to handle the basket. Do not take it from their hands or pass it around. Thank you for your generosity and continued cooperation in the meantime.
