COVID-19 Diocesan Update:
 
 
The announcement that the entire country is moving to Level 5 of the ‘National Framework for living with COVID-19’ has huge repercussions for our diocese. Briefly I just want to remind you of the following points:
 
 
·        Masses: No public Masses are allowed in Level 5, all Masses to go online from midnight tonight. All churches are to remain open for private prayer.
 
·        Baptisms: Planned baptisms for the coming days or weeks are unfortunately to be deferred until a suitable date can be arranged later.
 
 
·        Funerals: The maximum that can attend a funeral in Level 5 is 25.
 
 
·        Marriages: The maximum that can attend a wedding in Level 5 is 25.
 
 
I realise this is very hard on all of you, I also think of the children and couples waiting to celebrate huge moments in their lives. I ask you to remember each other in prayer at this time.
 
 
Every blessing & thanks,
 
+Denis
