It is so nice to be back at weekend mass and meeting with the community. Weekend masses take place on Saturday morning at 10am and Saturday evening at 7.30pm and then on Sunday mornings at 9.30am. I have had a few enquiries about the booking of anniversary masses. There are no mass bookings at the moment but the minute I am given the go ahead I will let you all know.
The good news is that the club are delighted to return to their club lotto on Saturday, August 1. This is the club’s only fundraising facility at the moment so they would really appreciate your support. Tickets will be on sale at Centra as usual but you can also play on online by downloading the Clubforce app. Support your local club and also chance your luck, you could be the lucky winner.

Masses in Killea
Sunday Mass is in Killea Church at 10am. Masses will be live streamed and on radio. We will have offertory collection outside before all masses, Killea Church is restricted to 50 to 75 people due to two metres social distancing. Once we have reached these numbers in the church, in the interest of safety we will not be able to allow any more inside, however you can hear mass in the church grounds or sit in your cars and listen on radio. If you wish to receive Holy Communion, a Minister of the Eucharist will come to you outside. Weather permitting, we will have mass outside.
Those of you who are/were cocooning and are vulnerable if you would like to attend mass at a quieter time, we will have special mass in Killea at 7.30pm on Wednesdays. There will be no need for Sunday obligation if you attend these masses. Please maintain a social distance of two metres in Church and Church Grounds at all times and please feel free to wear a mask. To book an anniversary mass, baptism or wedding please phone 051-383127
