In keeping with H.S.E. & Diocesan guidelines we wish to inform you of the following:
Weekday Masses in the Sacred Heart Church will take place at 10am Monday – Friday. From Friday November 27th these services are not open to the public until further notice.
Weekend Masses in the Sacred Heart Church will take place on Saturday evening at 6pm and Sunday Morning at 11am. Again these are not open to the public until further notice.
Social distancing measures are currently in place and we would appreciate if these measures are adhered to. Face Coverings are advised for everyone who attends Church.
Hand Sanitising dispensers are installed at all doors. Please sanitise on entrance and exit of the Church.
The capacity in The Sacred Heart Church is 80 people. This will mean a very small congregation. To allow fairness in Church attendance, admission to the Saturday Vigil and the Sunday 11am Masses will be arranged by townlands. Parishioners from the specified areas will be invited to attend Mass on these days and will be on a rota basis. This information will be provided in the weekly bulletin and via our Facebook Page.
We ask you to show kind generosity to those immediate families who have booked anniversary Masses when you are considering whether you will attend or not.
If you attend a weekday Mass, we ask you NOT TO ATTEND a weekend Mass. This allows someone who is unable to attend during the week to be present.
Baptisms as arranged with restricted numbers.
Weddings as arranged with restricted numbers.
Burials as normal. Funeral Mass will be arranged in consultation with the family of the deceased.
Communion to the housebound will cease until further notice.
Mass will continue to be broadcast from Sacred Heart Church via the Webcam - https://www.devenishparishirvinestown.com/webcam.
For the time being, St. Molaise Church in Whitehill will NOT be in use due to the very small capacity as a result of social distancing. All pre booked anniversaries for St Molaise, Whitehill will be honoured during the 11am Mass in the Sacred Heart Church.
Anyone wishing to cancel or reschedule their anniversary Mass, please contact Fionnuala at the Parish office on 028686 28600 or
