All Public Masses in the Parish have been until further notice

Parochial House
New Road
Co. Cork

5th January 2021

In light of the recent extraordinary increase in Covid-19 Cases and hospitalisations and in the interests of everyone’s safety, it has been decided that all Public Masses in the Parish of Doneraile are to be cancelled.

Our three Churches will remain open for private prayer daily and for visits to the Crib.

Masses will be streamed online at 11AM on Sundays and 10AM on Tuesdays. In addition, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will be streamed live every Tuesday after Mass and Benediction will be given at 12PM.

Admission to the Church during the live broadcasting of Mass is strictly Prohibited in accordance with Government Guidelines and we would ask all parishioners to respect this regulation, which, after all, has been put in place for the protection of our health and well-being. The health and safety of our community and especially the most vulnerable is my first priority.

I would like to wish you all a Very Happy, Holy, Healthy and Blessed New Year.

With every good wish & blessing,

Fr. Aidan
Parish Priest of Doneraile
