Both Masses will be available on webcam.

Social distancing will apply at all Masses and when all the seats are taken, others may remain in their cars and receive Holy Communion when the congregation has left the church.

 

VIGIL AND SUNDAY MASSES NEXT WEEKEND

Saturday Vigils and Sunday Masses for different areas of the parish will commence next weekend, 18th and 19th July.

Masses will be held as follows:

7.30 pm Vigil Mass in St. Patrick’s Church, Keenaught.

In Ballinascreen Parish:

5 pm Vigil Mass in St. Eugene’s Church, Moneyneena.

6.15 pm Vigil Mass in Holy Rosary Church, Draperstown.

9 am Sunday Mass in St. Columba’s Church, Straw.

11 am Sunday Mass in St. Patrick’s Church, Sixtowns.

12 noon Sunday Mass in Holy Rosary Church, Draperstown.

Church doors will open 30 minutes before Mass starts.

Because of the new guidelines regarding social distancing, the number of parishioners that may attend each Mass is limited.  Therefore, following a 4-Week Cycle, each Mass will be for certain areas of the parish.

Full details of this 4-Week Cycle will be displayed on all Church doors, on the parish website, and on local club and community group Facebook pages from early in the week.

It is very important to note that the Sunday Obligation to attend Mass continues to be suspended.

In the church only families residing in the same household can sit together.

Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass as people leave.

Mass will be broadcast over the external speakers or you can watch Mass via the webcam (Coolcalm only).  Those outside the church in their cars can receive Holy Communion once Mass is finished and the congregation has left the Church.  Churches will be closed when the available seats are taken.

The safest place is still to remain at home.

Many thanks to those who have volunteered to assist in our Churches with implementing the many new guidelines at each Mass.  More volunteers welcome.

ST. JOSEPH’S YOUNG PRIESTS’ SOCIETY

This year, St. Joseph’s Young Priests’ Society celebrates its 125th Anniversary of the founding of the Society (in 1895).  The Society has launched a new website, www.stjosephsyoungpriestssociety.ie.  In congratulating the faithful members of S.J.Y.P., past and present, on its 125th Anniversary, the Society acknowledges the ongoing good work of the S.J.Y.P. members in parishes across the country and in our own diocese.  The work of S.J.Y.P. and the dedication of the members is very much understated, but the steady, prayerful and financial support is invaluable to us.  The National president, Mr. John Murphy, says that in the last ten years, through the generosity of members and benefactors, the Society has assisted, both prayerfully and financially, 1,449 ordinations to priesthood.  These include support for our own seminarians, of course, for which we are very grateful.

 

MATT TALBOT PRAYER SOCIETY – Praying for those suffering from Addiction

On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Eugene’s Cathedral launched the Matt Talbot Prayer Society.  This Prayer Society has been created to pray for people who are suffering from any form of addiction, to pray for those recovering from addiction, and to pray for all those affected by addiction, especially family members.  As we know addiction takes many forms from alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, to other less acknowledged addictions.

To join the Matt Talbot Prayer Society, you are invited to enrol the name of the person to be prayed for and the addiction from which we are praying that they will be freed.  Those enrolled will be prayed for specifically every day by members of the Matt Talbot Prayer Society.  Mass will be offered for those enrolled on the first Monday of every month in St. Eugene’s Cathedral, Derry, at 7.30 pm.  You will also receive an enrolment card to enable you to join in the prayer.  To enrol someone in the Matt Talbot Prayer Society, please phone St. Eugene’s Cathedral on 028 7126 2894 or email steugenes@btconnect.com or private message St. Eugene’s Cathedral Facebook page.

WEEKDAY MASSES

Since Monday 29th June Mass may be celebrated in churches with a limited number of people, depending on social distancing, some seats will be available at morning Mass in Holy Rosary Church, Draperstown on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 am and in St. Mary’s Church, Coolcalm on Tuesday and Thursday at 10 am, and Friday at 7.30 pm.  Masses will still be available on the webcam for the majority of parishioners.

However, it is still safer to remain at home and follow Mass on the webcam.  This certainly applies to the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions.

 Parishioners who wish to attend the 10 am Mass are asked to come early and to take directions from the ushers, who will guide you to your seat.  It will not be possible to sit wherever you like and social distancing must be maintained.

Please do not genuflect, bow your head in reverence instead.

There will be no kneeling during Mass, only sitting or standing.

Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass and on the hand only.  Parishioners must go to communion when instructed to do so and will leave the church by the nearest exit. You cannot come back into the church.

If the limit of seats is reached, parishioners are asked to sit in their cars and follow Mass, if they can, on the webcam.  When those seated have left the church, those who have remained in their cars are welcome to enter the church to receive Holy Communion.  They will sanitise their hands and leave as directed.

We thank you, in advance, for your cooperation as these new guidelines are implemented.

 

VIGIL AND SUNDAY MASSES

Sunday Masses including Saturday Vigils will remain on the webcam for now.

As a greater number of people attend Mass at the weekend than on a weekday, greater attention must be paid to how we can facilitate this larger number safely.

It is very important to note that the Sunday Obligation to attend Mass has been removed.

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

A large body of volunteers is needed to implement the many new guidelines.  As we hope to open each church in the parish for weekend Masses, as soon as possible, volunteers will be needed for each church.

Dates and times of meetings for volunteers will be posted on Facebook and parish webpages, etc.

THANK YOU for your generous contributions to the Parish.

Last Week:

Sunday Collection/Priests’ Collection envelopes:  £1,000.00.

Restoration Fund envelopes:  £55.00.

Pope’s Collection:  £190.00

Diocesan Purposes envelopes:  £25.00 (£380.00 in total).

 

ST. MARY’S, COOLCALM

St. Mary’s, Coolcalm, will be open for private prayer today Sunday from 3 pm to 5 pm and during the week ONLY on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm.  When you call into the church please pick up a coloured card at the door on the way to your seat.  When you have finished praying please leave the card behind on your seat.  That seat will be cleaned later in the day.  Thank you.

 

There will be NO HOLY HOUR from the Holy Rosary Church on Monday 29th June.

 

REOPENING OF CHURCHES FOR PUBLIC MASS

Following the news that from Monday 29th June Mass may be celebrated in churches with a limited number of people, depending on social distancing, some seats will be available at morning Mass in Holy Rosary Church, Draperstown on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 am and in St. Mary’s Church, Coolcalm on Tuesday and Thursday at 10 am, and Friday at 7.30 pm.  Masses will still be available on the webcam for the majority of parishioners.

However, it is still safer to remain at home and follow Mass on the webcam.  This certainly applies to the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions.

Despite the fact that permission has now been given to open churches for Mass, advice has been, to say the least, confusing.  Fr. Madden and Fr. McGirr believe that we should take the reintroduction of public worship slowly.  This is based on the many conversations they have had with parishioners in both parishes, from Parish Pastoral Groups, advice from medical professionals and guidelines issued by the Irish Episcopal Conference.  Therefore, though public daily Mass will resume on Monday 29th June, Sunday Masses including Saturday Vigils will remain on the webcam for now.  As a greater number of people attend Mass at the weekend than on a weekday, greater attention must be paid to how we can facilitate this larger number safely.  We will keep parishioners up to date throughout the week with notices on the Parish Website and via the Ballinascreen Parish Facebook.

It is very important to note that the Sunday Obligation to attend Mass has been removed.

 Volunteers needed:

In the meantime, a large body of volunteers is needed to implement the many guidelines that must be in place before daily Masses begin.  As we hope to open each church in the parish for weekend Masses, as soon as possible, volunteers will be needed for each church.

Dates and times of meetings for volunteers will be posted on Facebook, etc….

On Monday morning (29th June) parishioners who wish to attend the 10 am Mass are asked to come early and to take directions from the ushers, who will guide you to your seat.  It will not be possible to sit wherever you like and social distancing must be maintained.

Please do not genuflect, bow your head in reverence instead.

There will be no kneeling during Mass, only sitting or standing.

Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass and on the hand only.  Parishioners must go to communion when instructed to do so and will leave the church by the nearest exit. You cannot come back into the church.

If the limit of seats is reached, parishioners are asked to sit in their cars and follow Mass, if they can, on the webcam.  When those seated have left the church, those who have remained in their cars are welcome to enter the church to receive Holy Communion.  They will sanitise their hands and leave as directed.

We thank you, in advance, for your cooperation as these new guidelines are implemented.

Mindful that some Readers of the Word of God and Eucharistic Ministers may not be available to offer their services at this time, those who can are asked to please email the Parish Office as soon as possible giving name, address, and telephone number and the church they usually attend.  Thank you very much.  Email Address: desertmartinparish@gmail.com

This year, St. Joseph’s Young Priests’ Society celebrates its 125th Anniversary of the founding of the Society (in 1895).  The Society has launched a new website, www.stjosephsyoungpriestssociety.ie.  In congratulating the faithful members of S.J.Y.P., past and present, on its 125th Anniversary, the Society acknowledges the ongoing good work of the S.J.Y.P. members in parishes across the country and in our own diocese.  The work of S.J.Y.P. and the dedication of the members is very much understated, but the steady, prayerful and financial support is invaluable to us.  The National president, Mr. John Murphy, says that in the last ten years, through the generosity of members and benefactors, the Society has assisted, both prayerfully and financially, 1,449 ordinations to priesthood.  These include support for our own seminarians, of course, for which we are very grateful.

 

MATT TALBOT PRAYER SOCIETY – Praying for those suffering from Addiction

On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Eugene’s Cathedral launched the Matt Talbot Prayer Society.  This Prayer Society has been created to pray for people who are suffering from any form of addiction, to pray for those recovering from addiction, and to pray for all those affected by addiction, especially family members.  As we know addiction takes many forms from alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, to other less acknowledged addictions.

To join the Matt Talbot Prayer Society, you are invited to enrol the name of the person to be prayed for and the addiction from which we are praying that they will be freed.  Those enrolled will be prayed for specifically every day by members of the Matt Talbot Prayer Society.  Mass will be offered for those enrolled on the first Monday of every month in St. Eugene’s Cathedral, Derry, at 7.30 pm.  You will also receive an enrolment card to enable you to join in the prayer.  To enrol someone in the Matt Talbot Prayer Society, please phone St. Eugene’s Cathedral on 028 7126 2894 or email steugenes@btconnect.com or private message St. Eugene’s Cathedral Facebook page.
