The Lenten Campaign is one of the main fundraisers of the year. I invite you to take an envelope with the Trócaire box as you leave the church today.

Coronovirus Covid-19

The following comes into effect immediately to help contain the spread of the coronavirus and to protect parishioners.

Those with virus symptoms are dispensed from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass.

Some parishes have Mass available on the internet by means of webcams. Saint Mel’s Cathedral livestreams Mass daily and is available at www.longfordparish.com

Sanitised gels will be used by the priest and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion before and after the distribution of Holy Communion.

Because of the risk of spreading infection by the reception of communion on the tongue, those who normally receive in this traditional manner, are requested to receive on the hand, for the duration.

In parishes where pre-Confirmation children receive communion on the tongue parents are requested to show their children how to receive on the hand.

The sign of peace continues to be suspended.

Holy Water Fonts are to be left empty.

Only the main celebrant receives from the Chalice; it is not shared with concelebrants or ministers of Holy Communion or parishioners.
