►In the current Covid-19 crises restrictions and the suspension by the Archbishop of the Sunday obligation there will be no public Masses this weekend, St Patrick’s Day and until further notice in Blessington, Crosschapel, Manor Kilbride, Valleymount & Lacken Churches. You can join us for Mass on the Webcam at 6pm Saturday and 10am Sunday and 10am on St Patrick’s Day. www.blessingtonparish.ie
As there are normally less than 100 people at the weekday Masses these will continue for the present.
To encourage the faithful to enter into spiritual communion through these means. Please see prayer below. This is a time where there is a great need for prayer. Therefore, Blessington Church will be open for quiet prayer and reflection.
ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
