Buíochas le Dia and relief that the Church can open for public Worship agus Aifreann gach lá. The opening will be a gradual and a learning process for all of us. We will have to be careful and gently ease our way into Public Mass. Guildelines given by the Diocese and Public Health will have to be strictly followed by priest and community.

Protection from Covit 19 is still very important.
