A Coronavirus Prayer
Loving and healing God,
we, the people of Dingle, Fionn Trá and
Lios Póíl turn to you in prayer,
confident that you are with us and with all people in every moment.

We stand before you as people of hope, trusting in your care and protection.
May your faithful love support us and soothe the anxiety of our hearts.

Generous God,
fill us with compassion and concern for others, young and old,
that we may look after one another in these challenging days.

Bring healing to those who are sick with the virus and be with their families. May those who have died rest in your eternal embrace.
Comfort their family and friends.

Strengthen and protect all medical professionals caring for the sick and all who work in our medical facilities. Give wisdom to leaders in healthcare and governance
that they may make the right decisions for the well-being of people.

We pray in gratitude for all those in our country who will continue to work in the days ahead in so many fields of life for the sake of us all.
Bless them and keep them safe.

O God of creation and life,
we place ourselves in your protection.
May the mantle of your peace enfold us this day and tomorrow.

St ……., pray for us.
St ……., pray for us.
St ……., pray for us.

May all the saints of God, pray for us. Amen.

Covid-19 – Level 5
Implications for Parishes
At midnight on October 21st, the country moved to Level 5 restrictions for 6 weeks. The impact on Parish activity and religious services is as follows:-

  1. No Public Masses, masses on line only.
  2. Churches remain open for private prayer.
  3. In the case of funerals, a private funeral will take place due to Government advice regarding public gatherings. A maximum
    of 25 people may attend a funeral.
  4. Weddings may take place but no more
    than 25 people may attend.
  5. Baptisms are not permitted.
    Parish Offices will remain open but subject to strict compliance with all social distancing and hand sanitisation requirements. Face coverings must be worn by anyone visiting the Parish Office.

Thought for the day: Jesus does not pluck his summary teaching from the air – he quotes from the Shema Yisrael, the great daily prayer of Judaism found in Deuteronomy 6. The second part about the love of neighbour is taken from Leviticus 18. This mission statement stands as a resounding appeal to us today. We are asked not just to believe that there is a God, but to love God. We are asked not just to respect our neighbour, but to love our neighbour. Love is not only the truth about human beings but also the truth about God, who is love itself. Prayer: Great and loving God, your love for us is beyond what we can grasp with our minds and hearts. Let such great love for all awaken in us a true love of you and lead to authentic service of our neighbour.

Glory be to him whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. (Ephesians)

The Rosary is recited each evening during the month of October, at 7.00pm, from St Mary’s Church. You can join via webcam.
