Extra Masses being provided, but the restriction to 50 plus social distancing of two metres means that it will be impossible to provide for everyone who wishes to attend a Christmas Mass.  The following guidelines will apply –

  • First come first admitted till the limited capacity is filled. Note the total time permitted is one hour, mass and entry and exit included.
  • The well wrapped up could stay with strict social distancing outside the doors listening to speakers.
  • You could follow the Mass on webcam, or Facetime nearby and receive Holy Communion.
  • You could watch, listen to parish Masses from home and receive Holy Communion @ weekday Masses leading up to Christmas or just after Christmas. Think of the 12 days of Christmas                                                                                                                                                                     CHRISTMAS GREETINGS  As many family members from the area may not be able to get home this Christmas, the Parish Pastoral Council have created a platform for people from abroad to send a recorded greeting home which will be published on the Parish website on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day. If you know of someone who you think might like to avail of this service please ask them to visit where they will find the contact details and instructions for this project                                                                                                                                                                                           BALLINDERRY CHRISTMAS MARKET  Turning on of Christmas lights and Christmas Markets on Sunday afternoon 6th December from 3pm to 6pm.
