►In a Framework Document from the Irish Bishops concerning the return of the public celebration of Mass and the sacraments, an important requirement for this to take place in our Church of Our Lady in Blessington is that we have teams available to sanitise the church after the mass is celebrated.
With this in mind, I am appealing for volunteers to take on this important requirement. We will need to have teams in place after every Mass: 9.30am Monday to Friday, 6pm on Saturday and 10am on Sunday in order to be ready to re-open our Church to the public after 29th June.
Many thanks to those who have already volunteered but we will need more people……
If you are willing to volunteer for this very important service, please contact the Parish Office for further arrangements.
Thanking you in anticipation. Fr Richard
►The Church will be closed on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday to allow for deep cleaning before we re-open on Monday 29th for the public celebration of Mass. We are hoping to have Mass via Webcam transmitted from the Coimín Centre for the 3 days. The Blessed Sacrament will be reserved in the Coimín Centre to allow people to visit for quiet prayer and to light a candle
We will keep the area cleaned and disinfected but please use the HAND SANITISER as you enter & as you leave. The Church will re-open on Thursday.
►The Parish Office will be open from 10.30am to 12 noon each morning. Outside of this time Jean & Carol are still available by telephone or email if you want to have a relative or friend prayed for at mass, for mass cards or for any General Enquiries. Contact details on the Website
