Cemetery Masses 2020

Published on June 20, 2020

Bishop Farrell wrote to the parishes last week to ask that Cemetery Masses and the Annual Blessing of Graves be postponed at this time. This decision is taken in light of the guidance from NPHET: social distancing would be compromised and by their very nature the gatherings would invite families to travel long distance; further concern was expressed that large family groups might gather around a single grave and that the Mass might attract a large number of elderly people.
