Covid 19-Guidelines for our Opening of Churches.

As you are aware, the public celebration of Mass re-commenced on Monday June 29th.  To ensure that the preparations in each Church in our parish are efficiently and effectively planned a Parish Covid-19 support team of parishioners was established to organise preparations for this task.

From the 29th June Weekday Mass will resume at 10am as usual, subject to the following guidelines as proposed by the Irish bishops Conference, the H.S.E. and Archbishop Kieran.

The Guidelines are as follows:

  • Please observe the social distancing guideline (2m) on entering and leaving the Church.
  • Please sit in pew places that are clearly labelled.
  • People coming from different households must sit 2m apart in same pew ie. at either end of it.
  • People coming from the same household may sit together in the same pew.
  • Bear in mind the capacity of both churches is much reduced. This is because of the social distancing.
  • On entering and leaving the church, please sanitise your hands.
  • Please observe and heed the Covid-19 notices inside and outside of churches.
  • For the reception of Holy Communion, please observe the 2m social distancing guideline. There will be floor markings to guide you.  Stewards will be in place, to help and guide you. Please co-operate with them.
  • From the 29th June, there will be a one-way system in operation in both churches. Entry is by the main door and exit by the side door(s).
  • Please observe the 2m social distancing guideline on church grounds

SUNDAY MASS:  The public celebration of Sunday Masses will recommence at a later date.  This is because of the limited capacity of both our churches

  • Please note the Sunday Mass is online at twitch.tv/borrisoleighandileigh. (All one word and small letters) R.T.E. 1@ 11am and Tipp Mid-West Radio at 11am.
  • The dispensation from Sunday and Holyday of Obligation is extended for the time being.
  • For those who have been cocooning. The Dept. of Health strongly recommend that people who are over 70, or have a condition which makes them medically vulnerable should stay at home as much as possible.

Thanking you for your support in this matter.
