Bandon Parish

LEVEL 5 COVID RESTRICTIONS

As the country moves into Level 5 restrictions, Mass will continue to be live streamed here on our webpage. You can connect to watch Mass by clicking on the Church Services icon. We record and store the Mass for 7 days so if you miss it you can watch it later by clicking into the Church Services Icon and clicking at the RECORDINGS tab in red at the top of that page and choose which Mass you would like to see.

Baptisms will not go ahead at the moment.

Funerals and Weddings will remain private with a maximum of 25 people in attendance.

If you visit the church for private prayer please use the sanitizers at the entrance and exit doors, wear a mask and allow 2 meters distance between you and others who are not in your household.

Novena Envelopes are available in the church and can be posted in the letterbox on the top right side of the church at the sacristy door.

If the sacristy desk is unattended please leave your correspondence in the letterbox at the sacristy door and we will attend to it.

STAY SAFE

NOVEMBER NOVENA FOR THE HOLY SOULS

“The souls of the virtuous are in the hands of God” (WISDOM 3:1)

The Novena for the Holy Souls will commence on November 2nd – 11th Envelopes are available in the Church for you if you would like to add your loved ones names to the Novena List.

Because of Covid-19, parishioners and relatives will not be able to attend Masses and prayer services which are celebrated annually in early November for those who have died.

The Masses will be celebrated by the priests but without a congregation. These Masses will be broadcast and live streamed on this page – you can join us in prayer by clicking on the Church Services Icon on the top right of this page .

May the Souls of all our Faithful departed Rest in Peace.

Wear a face mask

In light of the renewed government guidance, Bishop Fintan asks people to wear face coverings in Church for all liturgical celebrations such as Mass, funerals, weddings, baptisms, confirmations and First Communions etc. so that we can create as safe an environment as possible  for those who come to Church and minimise the possibility of spreading the virus.

Children under 13 years of age and people who have received medical advice to not wear a mask are of course exempt.  (https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/aac74c-guidance-on-safe-use-of-face-coverings)
