Thought for the day: The risk for Christians today is that we read the parable complacently, because it clearly refers to Jews and Christians in the first century. But it is not only in the past that the leadership of God’s project has changed hands, so to speak. Down through history, more committed groups have challenged the established Church – they can attract by more exciting worship and by a closer living of the Gospel. The hard words of St Paul to the Gentile Christians in Rome may help to shake us up: For if God did not spare the natural branches, perhaps he will not spare you. (Rom 11:21) Prayer Lord of the vineyard, you call us to live the Gospel and to produce its fruits. Send your Spirit into our hearts, that we know the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Gal 5:22–23)

Parish Masses: It is great to have a congregation again. There are a few obvious changes in seating and reduced numbers in attendance but the primary aspect of the Church as a place of prayer remains.
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. Not all Masses are at capacity but by booking you are helping us to plan for how many may be in attendance.
Please phone at the following times only: 2.00pm – 4.00pm Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 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 Diocesan 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.

Please Note: If you wish to attend Mass on October 10th/11th please contact the parish office at the above times.

Diocesan Collection for Peter’s Pence will be taken up this weekend, Oct 3rd/4th. Please place your offering in the special box at the back of the church.
