Show them by example, teach them at home, let them learn by watching others in Church.

Guidelines for the Reopening of Public Worship from Bishop Martin:

1. The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days remains suspended at this time and every person should consider carefully if returning to collective worship is the safe and appropriate step for them at this time.

2. Seating is 2 meters apart within the Church (with household groups seated together).

3. Mask wearing is mandatory for all gatherings in Church.

4. Parishioners are to be encouraged NOT to gather outside the Church or in the car park after liturgical celebrations.

Thanks - I would like to thank you and the Covid-19 Support parish teams - including sacristans, caretakers, stewards and cleaners - who generously ensure that our churches are safe environments where people can confidently assemble for worship. Their collective task is not an easy one and I appeal to all the faithful to cooperate fully as we continue with our return to public worship. Until you feel you can return to Church; you can still access Masses online.

Mary’s Meals: We began feeding 200 children in Malawi in 2002 and are now feeding 1,838,859 children every day in places of education. Our vision is that every hungry child receives a daily meal and that all who have more than they need, share with those who are in need. With our no frills policy, it costs with Mary's Meals €18.30 to give a child a meal every day for a full school year.

To raise funds and awareness of Mary's Meals, we are walking throughout Ireland. Walks are starting on 7 August from Kilkenny, Malin, Derry, Armagh, Dublin, and Limerick and are all arriving in Knock Co Mayo on 15 August (restriction permitting). Maybe you could get involved in Step by Step to Feed the Next Child. You are invited to visit our website www.marysmeals.ie For more information you can phone Fr Eamonn Kelly on 0879077985. We would also like to organise a local walk in your area. Sponsor cards and t-shirts are available. Maybe you would be willing to undertake the challenge and so help to feed the little ones. Contact Patricia on 0863140814.
