Fr. Declan and the Parish Pastoral Council are delighted to announce that St. Mary’s Church, Listowel is now open for both public and private worship.  We extend a warm invitation to you to join us for the celebration of Mass.  In the event you are unable to attend Mass for whatever reason, please feel free to visit our beautiful Church for private prayer.  

There are guidelines in place to ensure that people can visit St. Mary’s Church in a safe manner and we thank you in advance for your co-operation and patience in following these guidelines.  We would ask you to note the following:- 

  1. The dispensation from attending Mass on Sundays and Holydays of obligation remains in place until further notice.  We therefore encourage people to attend one Mass during the week.
  2. We can now accommodate an increase in the numbers attending Mass and there is no longer any requirement to reserve a Mass time.  Please come to whatever Mass suits you.  Admittance will be on a first come – first served basis.
  3. We ask all those attending Mass to wear a face covering, where possible.
  4. Hand sanitisers are in place at all Church entrance and exit doors and please sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the Church.
  5. A team of ushers is in place to assist people attending Mass, facilitating the distribution of Holy Communion and organising the exit from the Church on a staggered basis at the end of Mass.  
  6. There are collection boxes at the rear of the Church, at entry and exit, for the collection of envelopes/offerings/donations and this replaces the normal offertory collection.  A sincere thanks for your continued support and generosity.*
