CLOSURE OF CHURCHES

Following the Northern Ireland Executive’s latest Covid 19 announcement that all churches must close for public worship from Friday next November 27 to December 11 inclusive (with the exception of weddings and funerals with 25 people present) all Masses from Friday November 27 in Ballinascreen and Desertmartin will be celebrated behind closed doors and available only on the parish webcams.

  • On Saturday and Sunday Masses will be at the following times only:

Saturday Vigil:

Holy Rosary Church~ 6.15 pm

Sunday:

St Mary’s Coolcalm ~ 10.00 am

Holy Rosary Church ~ 12 noon.

  • Daily Masses will continue at the usual times and places but only on webcam.

  • On Saturday 28 November, at the 6.15 pm Vigil Mass from Holy Rosary and the Sunday 10.00 am Mass from St Mary’s Coolcalm, Fr Madden and Fr McGirr will enrol by name all those children who are preparing to receive their First Holy Communion in 2021. We had hoped to invite a teacher from each school to participate at these Masses but that is not now possible under the new guidelines. We encourage all First Communion Families to come together either on Saturday evening or Sunday morning to celebrate their Mass of Enrolment.

Holy Rosary Church will open for Private Prayer as follows:

Monday and Wednesday: 11.00 am - 4.00pm

Parishioners are asked to please sanitize their hands as they enter and leave the church and to sanitize the candle lighter if used. Upon entering the church for Private Prayer please lift one of the yellow cards and leave it on the seat where you have been seated. Thank you
