The Cashel & Emly 50th Archdiocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes 14th to 20th June 2024. Booking forms in Sacristy. EUCHARISTIC LITURGY IN THE ABSENCE OF A PRIEST:  With the vast majority of clergy over the age of 70 and with the numbers of priests so depleted change is inevitable. You have already experienced the clustering of parishes and priests rotating from church to church to cover Eucharist. The imminent reality is that due to possible illness, injury, exhaustion, an accident, or a death the number of times people gather to celebrate the Eucharist and no priest turns up or no cleric is available will happen frequently and soon. With this simple truth in mind a Eucharistic Liturgy in the absence of a priest is now available in our Pastoral Unit of Parishes (Ballybricken, Bohermore, Caherconlish, Caherline, Herbertstown, Hospital, Knockainey, Patrickswell). Thanking you, in advance, for your support, understanding and participation.
