Thought for the Day:
Jesus had the gift of saying things directly and plainly, with a power to penetrate all our defences and lead us to a new awareness. Today’s message puts before us the paradox of the Gospel: we gain life by letting go of it. If I put my happiness, my being loved, at the centre of my life, then I will surely fail, even though to be loved and to be happy are really important. If on the other hand I put the happiness of others first and love them unconditionally, then I too will know unselfish love and deep happiness. This is the very insight and wisdom that Jesus puts before us as the key not just to love but to life and within that, the key to authentic discipleship precisely as a way of life.
Prayer: Teach us, Lord, that nothing is more life-giving than to love and be loved in return.

Parish Office
Please note the Parish Office will be closed on Friday next, September 4th. Booking for weekend Masses can be made on Wednesday and Thursday.

Parish Masses: We ask for your patience and understanding as we all get used to the new arrangements being mindful that the primary aspect of the Church as a place of prayer remains. There are a few obvious changes in seating and reduced numbers in attendance.
Anybody who wishes to attend weekdays Masses are welcome to do so. No booking required. Just arrive and sit in an allocated space. The following applies for the weekend Masses.
You are asked to phone the office at 066-9151208 to let us know what Mass you would like to attend. If you do not book, there will be no guarantee that you will be able to attend the Mass of your choice. Not all Masses are at capacity but by booking you are helping to plan for how many may be in attendance.
Please phone at the following times only: 2.00pm – 4.00pm Wednesday and Thursday (this week only) giving your name and number of persons (if more than 1). When you get to the Church you are asked to use the Hand Sanitizers provided and follow instructions from the stewards. We will celebrate Mass in St Mary’s Church, Dingle only, at this time. Your co-operation is very much appreciated. The following will apply in line with the Government guidelines:

• Communion can only be received in the hand at this time.
• You are asked to wear a face mask/ face covering or visor.
• Please sit in the designated spaces only.
• No kneeling, just to sit and stand only.
• Please place your offering for the offertory collection in the building fund boxes at the back of the churches as passing of baskets is not permitted.
