Churches to Reopen on May 18th:

The following is an edited version of Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly’s statement: “all churches in the Archdiocese may be reopened for a minimum period of time each day for private prayer. Masses will continue to be celebrated behind closed doors.  but I look forward to a later stage in the road-map where it will be possible to recommence weekday Masses”.

The three churches in the parish will be open daily (commencing on May 18th) from 10am – 6pm.

Please use the hand sanitisers on entering and leaving the church.
