Dues Envelopes
As the Autumn Dues and November Offering Envelopes 2020 are being distributed to households, Fr Michael would like to thank you for your support and generosity.

We appreciate you returning these envelopes at your earliest convenience. They can be placed in the Building Fund boxes at the back of the Churches. If paying by cheque, please make it payable to Tigh an tSagairt. Spare envelopes are available at the back of the parish churches. Buíochas ó chroí for your continued support.

Thought for the Day: The forty-two parables in the Gospels are designed to take us up short and make us think again. Today’s parable is a good example. The actions of the employer and the treatment of the workers simply would not work today as a labour relations strategy and would also not have worked in the time of Jesus. And what is the point? Really that it doesn’t matter when we come to the Gospel, early, middle or late, by routes direct or circuitous, in full stride or falteringly: all that matters is that we come to the Gospel. Achievement counts for nothing; grace is everything, thanks be to God!
Prayer: The door of faith is always open and you welcome us, O God, whenever our hearts are open. We are grateful for your loving patience and generosity.
(Fr Kieran O’Mahony)

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. 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 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.
