Liturgical Practice in the wake of Corona virus

Our parish has adopted the following guidelines when we gather for mass to mitigate the possibility of spreading the virus until further notice.

  1. Priests and Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist will practice extra hand hygiene.
    2. Physical contact such as handshakes at the Sign of Peace will be suspended.
    3. Communion will only be given in the hand and distribution of the Precious Blood will be discontinued.
    4. There will be no holy water in the fonts.
    5, Parishioners who have flu like symptoms or are feeling sick are encouraged not to go to mass or other church gatherings.  Mass is available via the internet on the our parish web site – www.smawilton.ie, then click on LIVE.

Our prayer intentions should be for the prevention of the spread of Corona virus, for the speedy recovery of those who have contracted the virus and for the medical professionals that attend to the sick.
