Important Parish Announcements

There will be no public masses in the Oughterard, Glann nor

Collinamuck churches AT ALL (including Sundays) until 29th

March 2020.

The Confirmation of the 27th March has been postponed.

The St Patricks day masses have been cancelled too.

Please read…

As people of faith, who readily take up life’s challenges when

needed, the parishioners of Oughterard now face another great

challenge in what has been a year of many highs and lows. Calm,

clear heads, with hearts of faith, will most certainly see us

through.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, in the best interests of public

health, the catholic bishops conference of Ireland have asked

that all parishes adhere to the government guidelines re.

avoiding large gatherings of people. Bishop Brendan Kelly has

issued the following statement for the diocese on the 12th

March 2020:

The statement of the catholic bishops conference of Ireland

acknowledges that it may be possible to have public Masses

where the congregation is less than 100. However, it is not

possible within this diocese of Galway to guarantee that

congregations can be limited to 100 or fewer.

Therefore, I am issuing an instruction that all public Masses in

this diocese, Sundays and weekdays, are suspended until 29

March or until further notice.

Please be advised that baptisms, weddings and funerals may take

place so long as the congregation is limited to 100 or fewer.

Please advise members of your congregation that anniversary

Masses may be rescheduled, or parish clergy can offer the

intention in a private Mass.
