Bishop Ray Browne has announced a number of clerical changes. Fr Niall who has been in this parish for 3 years has been appointed to Fossa Parish as Parish Priest. We have been enriched by his ministry and we wish him well in his new appointment. Fr. Amos Ruto has been appointed as Curate in this Parish. We look forward to making him welcome. The changes took effect from last Wednesday August 5th.
Jack Charlton has been laid to rest,
the memories they are mighty.
The victory over England at Stuttgart,
the euphoria of Italia ’90!
He lifted our people and country,
The likes we’ve never known.
“Olé, Olé” was all the go – and not,
You’ll Never Walk Alone!
As mentioned last weekend, it is with delight and apprehension that we announce the return of Public Masses with restricted numbers. It will be a very different experience to attend Mass with smaller numbers and social distancing. Some people may not feel comfortable in attending Mass. The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays continues to be lifted.
We appreciate that many workers will only be available to attend Mass at weekends, so if you are able to attend a weekday Mass instead, it would be very helpful. The weekday Masses are open to all to attend. If you wish to attend the vigil and usual Sunday Masses at 10am, 11.15am and 12.30pm, we are asking you to contact the Parish Office to reserve a place by phoning the Parish Office Monday to Friday mornings.
For those who will attend Mass in this church, the following will need to be noted:
1. Please enter by the Main Door only.
2. Use hand sanitisers entering and leaving the church.
3. Please sit in the designated spaces only, indicated by stickers.
4. Ushers will assist with the movement of people before and after Mass.
5. At weekend Masses the passing of baskets is not recommended so our collection will now be inside the door of the Church. These boxes will be in place for all Masses but you are only asked to contribute at one Mass.
6. Communion can only be received in your hand at this time.
Many thanks to the Parish Pastoral Council and our sacristans with our preparations for public Masses.
The live streaming in no longer available on the MCN website but only through the parish website …..… Our Lady & St Brendans Tralee and click on “Live Video” The Masses are now recorded and available on the website soon after the Mass is celebrated.
The Parish Office will be open this week, each morning from 9am—12.30pm.
Mass will be live-streamed each day:
Sunday …………... 10.00am
Monday - Saturday 9.30am
RADIO KERRY: Our regular Mass on Sundays will be broadcast live on Radio Kerry at 10am for the duration of the current restrictions. As many older people don’t have live-streaming, this will be an important contact with a parish Sunday Mass. Many thanks to Radio Kerry for their support at this difficult time.
Due to the current restrictions, confessions for Easter will not take place. Catholic doctrine teaches that if a person cannot get to Confession, it is sufficient to confess one’s sins to God, seeking forgiveness and with the intention of going to confession when next possible. God forgives the sins and the person is renewed in heart and soul. When the opportunity then arises later to go to Confession, he or she should do so.
From Monday, Sept. 16th weekday opening times will be 9.00am-12.30pm and 1.00pm-4.30pm. (Monday-Friday).
We hope this year’s Festival is an outstanding success and a fitting reward for the dedication and enthusiasm of all involved. We extend a very warm welcome to all who have returned home, to all visitors to Tralee and our Parish for the Rose of Tralee Festival. We hope you experience warmth and hospitality during your stay.
We are pleased to announce once again some Roses will attend 10am Mass this Sunday (August 25th), followed by refreshments in the Pastoral Centre. This is your chance to have a chat/ photograph with some of the Roses.
All welcome. Céad Míle Fáilte
