                   From Bishop Deenihan           Re Mass Suspension

I have consulted widely on the celebration of Mass in the Diocese in the context of today’s announcement from the Government and the ban on gatherings of more than 100 people.  We must be mindful of public health and I am particularly concerned at the inability to maintain a congregation below 100.                                      In that context, I am suspending all public Masses in the Diocese with immediate effect.                                                                                                        Weddings and funerals may continue provided the government guidelines are adhered to. 

Obviously priests will continue to offer Mass and I would ask you to join me in offering Mass for those who are sick and worried at this time. 

It may be possible that some Masses will broadcast on webcam.

While Masses are suspended, the voice of prayer should not be silent. 

I know that many will want to go to our churches and pray privately and it should be accommodated.

Extract from Saint Patrick’s Breastplate

Christ with me,                                              Christ when I lie down,

Christ before me,                                          Christ when I sit down,

Christ behind me,                                          Christ when I arise,

Christ in me,                                                  Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ beneath me,                                        Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ above me,                                           Christ in every eye that sees me

Christ on my right,                                         Christ in every ear that hears me.

Christ on my left,                                           Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ when I arise,
