Christenings: The Sacrament of Baptism can be administered in the church from June 29th onwards. Please take note of the following:
Please limit your numbers present to twenty or less. Only people from the same household should sit next to each other
Only one Christening can take place on the date chosen.
Dates are:
Any Saturday in Glenville, 4pm
Any Saturday in Watergrasshill, 5pm
Hopefully this will clear the backlog. This arrangement will remain in place until the end of the year.
There will be no Christenings on a Sunday; there would be a possible danger of cross contamination. Sister Lily and myself will meet with any of the couples by arrangement beforehand. The baptism team will return to work after Christmas.

Public Mass will be offered for the first time since mid-March beginning on Monday June the 29th. Please note the details in the calendar (Newsletter link).
Both churches will now open at 9am and close at 6pm

Because the First Friday Mass will be held in the church in Watergrasshill on July 3rd at 7pm and not in Ballinaltig Cemetary as originally planned; the Blessing of Graves will take place the following Friday, 10th at 7pm in Ballinaltig and 8pm in Ard na Gaoithe. There will be a short prayer at the beginning and at the end. There will be no Mass. Relatives are asked to stand at their own family graves to ensure social distancing

Home visits with communion and anointing will resume in July but not all in the one day. There will be one visit to one particular house in the morning and one in the afternoon until all have been visited. Contact will be made in advance; we probably have everyone’s contact number. Please let the office know of any changes in contact information.

Adoration will remain confined to present times throughout July and August.

Altar servers are asked to come to a meeting at 3pm on Saturday July 4th in Glenville and 4.30pm in Watergrasshill Chursh

At next weekend’s Masses (July 4th/5th) please follow directions from some of our parishioners who have offered to help with stewarding.
