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
