ALL PUBLIC WEEKEND MASSES TO BE DISCONTINUED

PUBLIC WEEKEND MASSES TO BE DISCONTINUED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
New update from Bishop Gavin:
The Government announcement earlier today requires that the attendance at any event including Mass must not exceed 100 people. While today’s Norms from the Irish Bishops’ Conference allowed for the continuation of weekend Masses, it is not feasible to restrict the numbers in this way.
In light of this in the Diocese of Cork and Ross, all public Weekend Masses will be discontinued until further notice. This also refers to Masses for St. Patrick’s Day.
Funerals, weddings, baptisms and weekday Masses may continue as long as the attendance does not exceed 100 people.

Blessing of Throats Next Weekend

Monday Feb 3rd is the Feast of St Blaise. Throats will blessed after Masses on Sat, Sunday and Monday next.
According to legend ‘In 316, the governor of Cappadocia and of Lesser Armenia, Agricola, arrested Bishop Blaise for being a Christian. On their way to the jail, a woman set her only son, who was chocking to death on a fish bone, at his feet.

Blaise cured the child, and though Agricola was amazed, he could not get Blaise to renounce his faith. Therefore, Agricola beat Blaise with a stick and tore at his flesh with iron combs before beheading him.’
