From Fr John Gilligan, ModeratorSUNDAY MASS OBLIGATION IN CURRENT WEATHER SITUATIONWhere weather conditions make it unsafe or where road conditions make it dangerous, imprudent or difficult, there is no obligation to attend Sunday Mass this weekend.When people are unable to attend Mass it is recommended that they view or listen to the Mass on-line, on television or radio or that they spend a time in prayer as individuals or as a family.Where serious conditions of access or safety arise regarding a Church building, the Parish Priest or Rector may decide that a Church may remain closed even on Sunday.
and Matt O'Sullivan, Chairperson, PPC
Due to the state of the roads and areas around our Churches we are cancelling all Masses in Saggart, Rathcoole, and Brittas this weekend. Mass in Newcastle will go ahead (i.e. Saturday Vigil, 7 p.m. and Sunday, 10.30 a.m.). The diocese supports this decision in the interests of health and safety (see above communication). We hope you are all keeping warm and have enough food. Please keep in contact with those who are housebound to see they are okay.
