Reinstatement of Obligation to attend Mass. At the heart of the life of our parish communities is the Sunday Mass. During Lent, we can encourage everyone to return to Sunday and weekday Mass in our churches. From Easter Sunday, 17 April, this will once again be deemed an essential expression of faith for all in our Church in Ireland. As always, those whose health is vulnerable or who are unwell will not be under any obligation to attend Mass.

A special collection will be taken up at all Masses throughout Ireland on the weekend of Sunday 27 March 2022. The proceeds of this collection will be distributed to the Churches in Ukraine by the Irish Episcopal Conference.

Please collect TROCAIRE boxes at the church porch

Prayer for Ukraine.

Loving God,

We pray for the people of Ukraine,

For all those suffering or afraid,

that you will be close to them and protect them.

We pray for world leaders,

for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.

We pray for the world; that in this moment of crisis,

we may reach out in solidarity

to our brothers and sisters in need.

May we walk in your ways

so that peace and justice

become a reality for the people of Ukraine

and for all the world.


Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us!

Our Lady of Kyiv, pray for us!
