“Thank You” to all the parishioners who have made donations in recent weeks to help pay the bills. The Sunday “Basket Collection” is replaced by donation boxes at the back door to the Churches.

Special thanks to our Sacristans.

We encourage people to come to Mass during the weekdays to avoid big numbers at the weekend. You fulfil your obligation to attend Mass in these times by attending any Mass during the week. Communion can only be distributed on the hands in line with current Covid-19 Guidelines.

We ask people to continue to wear masks.  Adherence to social distancing guidelines is paramount, as are hand hygiene measures.

Due to the pause in the Covid Roadmap OPEN AIR CONFIRMATION CEREMONIES take place in the School Yard in Caherline School  Wednesday 5th August at 12.30 pm & 2 pm & in Caherconlish School Saturday 8th August 11 am. Fr. Roy is delegated by the Archbishop to confer Confirmation. Please, God, we get fine weather.

BAPTISMS have resumed.  It is important to fill out the form and return it before your date can be confirmed by the Baptismal Team.

The Annual Mass in Inch Saint Laurence Cemetery has been cancelled. Perhaps on Friday 8th August round 7.30pm that evening we could all say a silent prayer for all buried there and those who have died during the past year.   We were looking forward to showing off our new pathway to the Crucifix.  The cemeteries in the parish are well maintained.  A collection is usually taken up on the night to help towards their upkeep.  We still need your generosity to help maintain these standards for the coming year.  It would be appreciated if you could give a donation via an envelope marked St. Laurence Cemetery. Thank you
