___________________________________________________________

  Irish Church leaders urge worshippers to wear face coverings to reduce the spread of coronavirus Wednesday 19th August 2020.

Following further recent consultations with public health authorities, we join with Christian church leaders all over this island in formally recommending and encouraging the use of face coverings at all services of worship, along with the ongoing maintenance of 2 metre physical distancing, from Sunday 30 August 2020, and earlier if practicable.  We also recognise that whilst it may not be appropriate for those who are leading from the front during worship, including preaching, to wear face coverings, they should at all times continue to maintain at least 2 metre physical distancing from one another, and 4 metre physical distancing from the front row of the congregation.

ATTENDING MASS IN LISTOWEL CHURCH

  1. Wear a mask or face shield.
  2. Sanitise your hands when entering the Church.
  3. An usher will guide you to a seat.
  4. There is no kneeling at mass only standing and sitting.
  5. For communion wait until the usher guides you up to receive communion, at the station lower your mask, place both your hands in a cupped position over table to receive communion into your hand returning to your seat in a clockwise position if seating to the right and anti-clockwise if seating to the left.
  6. When mass is over please remain in you seats until usher guides out and sanitise your hands when leaving the church.
  7. Only remove your mask outside church gates please do not congregate outside the church door.
