It is a Parish where love is tangible and practical


Fr. Declan & the Parish Pastoral Council are delighted to announce that St. Mary’s Church will re-open for the celebration of public Mass on Monday June 29th, 2020.

In order to facilitate the smooth return of public Mass we would ask all parishioners to observe the following guidelines.

  1. Parishioners are encouraged to attend one Mass during the week as the dispensation from attending Mass on Sundays and Holydays of obligation remains in place until further notice.

  2. As the Church will have a reduced capacity due to Covid-19 restrictions parishioners are required to reserve a Mass time by contacting the Parish Office on 068 21188 between 2.00 pm and 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and a Mass time can be reserved up to a week in advance.

  3. Parishioners are asked to be in their seats at least five minutes prior to the start of Mass.

  4. It is recommended that parishioners wear a face covering in Church.

  5. A team of ushers will be in place to assist parishioners and to ensure implementation of the diocesan guidelines for the return of public Mass.

  6. Communion Stations will be in place to allow people receive Holy Communion. Please obey the directions of the ushers.

  7. If a person has a specific requirement, for example a person with coeliac condition, please notify the Parish Office when reserving the Mass time.

  8. There will be collection points on the entrance to and exit from the Church for the collection of envelopes/offerings/offertory collection. A sincere thanks for your continued support and generosity.

  9. Hand sanitisers are in place at all church entrance and exit doors and remember to observe the Government advice in relation to hand hygiene, cough etiquette and social distancing.

10.Please be patient with one another and remember that we all have a shared responsibility to ensure the successful implementation of the guidelines.

REMEMBER any person with an underlying medical condition or at high risk of severe illness as a result of Covid-19 should remain at home and participate in the Mass online www.listowelparish.com or through the Parish radio link.
