A very sincere thanks to the COVID-19 team in both Terryglass and Kilbarron who enable us to celebrate our liturgies with the role of ushers/stewards and again sanitising after each Mass. We acknowledge and thank parishioners and all who use our churches for your co-operation and understanding.

Face Coverings in Church  In solidarity with the vast majority of our fellow citizens who actively promote and pursue as safe an environment as possible – in their homes, their places of work and places where they shop or gather, the Diocese of Killaloe now ‘strongly recommends’ the wearing of face coverings in addition to the continuation of social distancing and sanitising in all its Churches and buildings as public Masses and services continue.

New School Year Teachers and students will be returning to schools before the end of this month. Leaders are already preparing for the new academic year. They must establish new school routines that support the health and safety of students and staff and prevent Covid- 19 from spreading in the schools. We hope they will be successful. A good start is half the work. Let us pray for our teachers and educators at this challenging time as they care for and provide education for young people. Bless them in their work. We advise students to remember the following from Irish folklore: Three things you can never get back: a day absent from school, a Sunday without Mass and a day away from one’s trade. Learning is no burden.

Corona Virus Prayer  Dear God, I pray for healing for all affected by this deadly virus. Only You can move in a mighty way and do the impossible for them. We pray for all negative outcomes to be resolved by Your healing hands. Bless and embrace each and every single person and bring full healing to their bodies, minds and spirits. Amen
