CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
06.06.2020

As the restrictions are gradually being eased, I am pleased to announce that the Church will open on Monday 8th June for private prayer from 2.00pm - 4.00pm. Entrance via the main doors in the Atrium. There will be protocols in place and we ask people to observe the protocols to ensure the safety of everyone. Parts of the Church will be sealed off but we hope that this limited opening will help to ease the transition back to more regular routine. The government have brought forward the date for resumption of Public Worship to June 29th and we are putting in place measures to accommodate social distancing and hygiene. This will involve a reduction in the numbers who may attend at any one Mass and also seats will be allocated for specific groups of people, i.e. Families, Couples, Individuals. It will take some time for everyone to become used to the new ways, but with everyone's cooperation, we hope to provide a safe and prayerful experience. Updates will be provided on a regular basis.

  • Coronavirus, Church and You

    DCU’s Mater Dei Centre for Catholic Education (Director, Dr. Gareth Byrne) has an important survey just made available. The Covid-19 pandemic has obviously had a profound effect on Church. As we pass the most severe period of lockdown, it seems a good time to assess how clergy and churchgoers have responded to the experience, and what they think the future might hold. The views of priests, religious and lay people are all welcome. To have your say go to: https://www.dcu.ie/materdei-centre-for-catholic-education/news/2020/May/Coronavirus-Church-You-Survey.shtml
