MESSAGE FROM THE ARCHBISHOP:

 

Cemetery Masses:

 

I appreciate that for many the annual Cemetery Mass is an important occasion for families, neighbours and the local community. Especially this year if funerals have had to take place in the current restrictions. These Masses usually involve many families and parishioners

 

In the present circumstances, it would be very difficult to ensure social distancing especially about transport to and from the cemetery, entering and leaving the cemetery and in monitoring possible large gatherings around some family graves.

 

I request that all Cemetery Masses be postponed until later in the summer, when circumstances, hopefully, will permit them to be truly family and community celebrations.

 

Funeral Masses:

 

The current norms regarding a maximum of 10 people attending in Church are still in force and disrespect for this norm could lead to even tighter restrictions.
