With level 5 restrictions now in place the celebration of Mass is only available online or broadcast on radio and TV.

Visit www.bodyketuamgraneyparish.ie and follow the link for Mass online at 10am from Bodyke church from Sunday through to Friday.

Scariff Bay Community Radio continues to broadcast 11am Mass live each Sunday as it has since the first lockdown. 88 3Fm or 92.7fm.

The church will remain open for personal prayer. You are encouraged to pray at home, including especially prayers for the sick, for those who are caring for the sick and for all who are working so hard to protect us.

Parish contributions: During these weeks when the public celebration of Mass is not permitted you may wish to drop your weekly and special collection envelopes at the O’Gonnelloe parish office. You may also contact the parish office for information on how to contribute through your bank or we would encourage you to use the online donation facility at killaloediocese.ie as a means of contributing to the parish. Follow the instructions and note that all monies donated come directly to the parish. Thank you for your support.

Dates for Sacraments 2021: With the celebrations of Sacraments now completed for the past year, inevitably some queries have been made about preparations for Sacraments in 2021 and possible dates. At this point in time no decisions have been made, it is likely to be at least January before any dates are set. We will keep in touch with all concerned through the schools and in the meantime we would encourage you to visit the church and attend Mass whenever possible.

Planning to get married in 2021? You need to give at least six months notice for the completion of church and civil papers and so it would be a good idea to contact Fr David to chat through the necessary requirements. This applies whether you are getting married in the parish, elsewhere in Ireland or overseas.
