We express our closeness in prayer and support for those with the Covid-19 virus and those impacted in any way by it in what are very difficult circumstances. We are mindful especially of those seriously ill in hospital, those who have died, and family and loved ones.
We wish to express our thanks to priests and sacristans as well as the many volunteers in our churches who ensure that all the requirements around the sanitising of our churches are observed. We also acknowledge with gratitude the care and help of undertakers in implementing the restrictions.
We want to highlight some points that we consider important in relation to the implementation of public health guidelines in the context of bereavements and funerals. We do so for the benefit of all concerned – mourners, undertakers, neighbours and friends as well as priests and public authorities –, that we might have a common understanding of good practice around funerals aimed at keeping people safe from the virus. It is vital we take all precautions to prevent the further spread of Covid-19. In offering this guidance we recognise and appreciate that the vast majority of Catholics carefully observe the public health guidelines.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions no public Masses will be celebrated until further notice.
Let us keep the people of our country in our prayers at this time.

1. Please use the sanitisers provided as you enter and leave.
2. Observe social distancing.
PRAYING MASS ON LINE: As we gather at home for our Sunday Mass celebrations online, some suggestions that might help our prayer-time:
1. Create a sacred space where you will sit to attend Mass e.g.using a crucifix or candle just like you might do if preparing for a house Mass.
2. Invite family members to name a prayer intention that everyone will pray for during the Mass.
3. Join in praying the responses, just like you would in church.
We are reminded of the words of Jesus - ‘Where two or three aregathered in my name, there am I in their midst’ – We remember that Jesus Christ is present in our homes as we pray at Mass together.

is a fundraising event being organised by Tralee student, Rebecca Poultney for the Tir na nŌg orphanage in Tanzania, founded by Tralee native Louise Quill. Rebecca, who was involved in the parish youth group a few years ago, is helping the orphanage towards the purchase of essentials such as shoes, clothes, socks and towels. All remaining money will be put towards renovations in the orphanage. Rebecca would really appreciate if you could donate to this very worthy cause either through the parish website or donations to the Parish Office. Many thanks.
