Keeping each other safe in our Churches. Ferrybank & Slieverue Parishes Covid Policy

Published on December 3, 2021

In these days  of increased numbers of Covid cases and as additional restrictions are announced it is important that we do all we can to protect each other and keep each other safe especially the following…

  • Being vaccinated and accepting your booster shot when offered. No one should come to church without being vaccinated unless there is a serious medical reason why you can’t receive the vaccine. There are no religious grounds for refusing the vaccine. As Pope Francis has pointed out it is an act of solidarity with others to take the vaccine. Those who refuse are showing contempt for the lives of others and putting themselves at serious risk.
  • staying at home if you have any symptoms of cold or flu, including coughing.
  • wearing a mask when in Church and all outdoor celebrations also.
  • Sanitising your hands on arrival at the Church and when leaving
  • Observing social distancing
  • Continuing to receive Holy Communion in the hand
  • sanitisation fo our churches after Masses and other faith celebrations

If we continue to exercise caution then we can gather safely to pray and celebrate our faith.

Thank you to our Ushers who keep us safe every weekend at all our Masses
