Attending Mass Guidelines:
You are asked to follow best practice guidelines when deciding about attending Mass and if yes is the answer to any of the following then you are encouraged to please stay away from Mass for the time being.
1. If you have symptoms of cough, fever, high temperature, sore throat, runny nose, breathlessness or flu like symptoms in the last 14 days? 2. Have you been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected Covid-19 infection in the last 14 days? 3. Are you a close contact of a person who is a confirmed or suspected case of Covid-19 in the past 14 days?
4. Have you been advised by a doctor to self-isolate at this time? 5. Have you been advised by a doctor to cocoon at this time?

Thought for the Day:
In today’s Gospel, Jesus changes his mind! How is that possible? Twice in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus limits his ministry to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt 10:6; 15:24). In today’s story, however, a very feisty woman, clearly not a daughter of Abraham, with her urgency and her witty retort, brings Jesus to recognise the needs of those beyond the ethnic confines of the Jewish people. They are ordinary human beings too, just as much in need of the Good News of the Kingdom as anyone else.
Prayer: We believe and we know, O God, that you love the human race, without make any distinction of persons or rank. Inspire us to see you in everyone we meet, for all are your children and you are the father of us all.

Message from Bishop Ray on Pastoral Care of Annascaul Parish. In the recent Diocesan changes, I have appointed Father Michael Moynihan, Parish Priest of Dingle, as Moderator (Administrator) of Annascaul parish. He will work with the other Priests in the Corcha Dhuibhne Pastoral Area, including Fr Eamonn Mulvihill PP Castlegregory and Fr Eugene Kiely PP Ballyferriter. Together, they will minister to the Pastoral and Sacramental needs of the people of Annascaul Parish. While every effort will be made to maintain the existing service, nevertheless it is important to realise that with fewer priests and more demands on them, it is inevitable that there will be changes affecting all parishes. During the months ahead there will be consultation and planning regarding the future Pastoral Care of Annascaul Parish within the Pastoral Area.
Fr John O’Donoghue (Missionaries of Africa) and Fr Donal O’Connor (Chaplain in ITTralee) will be ministering in Annascaul Parish until Christmas.
I wish to thank Fr John, Fr Donal and the Priests of the Pastoral Area for their committment to the people of Annascaul Parish and the wider Corcha Dhuibhne Pastoral area.
Yours in Christ,
+ Ray Browne.
