A Catholic Faith Community in County Cork, Ireland
Nine days of Masses are offered each year from Nov 2nd — 10th for our people who have died. It’s known as the Novena for the Holy Souls. (A Novena is something that takes place across nine days.)
This year, due to Covid19 restrictions, the Masses will be offered without a congregation in church. However, people can join in prayer online as the Masses will be live streamed from Enniskeane Church.
Masses will be offered from Nov 2nd on Mon – Sat each day at 7.30pm.
On Sunday 8th at 12 noon, the Mass will be especially for the people whose funerals have taken place in our parish in the past 12 months.
There are a number of ways people can enrol their loved ones in the Novena:
PRAYER AT THE TIME OF A PANDEMIC
Lord Jesus, Who promised to remain with us always,
When information overwhelms us
and fear overtakes us.
speak to us again those comforting words,
“Peace be with you.”
Though we cannot be physically close to others,
give us the ability and courage
to love as well as we can,
Since “perfect love casts out all fear.”
Direct your caring gaze on doctors and nurses,
researchers and safety personnel;
Come to strengthen the sick, vulnerable,
and comfort those who are grief stricken.
And when the pandemic has passed,
and this frightening crisis is resolved,
teach us to know You more certainly
as our dearest Friend and our only Hope.
You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
One God, forever and ever, Amen.
(offer one Our Father. One Hail Mary, and the Glory be….)
Our Lady, Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
The month of October has always been the safeguarding month in the Diocese but how it is marked this year has changed because of Covid19.
Issuing a newsletter to the people of the diocese the Safeguarding Office of the diocese acknowledges that every other October the office would be dealing with people face to face.
“Normally we would be holding a safeguarding conference, sending out the yearly safeguarding parish audits, visiting parishes, training etc.”
Ms Cleo Yates, Director of Safeguarding & Designated Liaison Person for the Diocese of Cork and Ross, says that “given these difficult times with Covid, things have changed and almost all our connection to the parishes is by way of online forms of communication, which brings its own challenges.”
The Newsletter is available for free download at this link.
Due to government restrictions for Level 3 we cannot have a congregation at Mass.
However, Mass will be celebrated in the parish church at 12n on each Sunday and it will be live streamed on the parish facebook page. So everyone is welcome to be part of our distanced but connected praying community.
Weekday Mass on Monday, Tues, Thurs and Fri at 10am are also live streamed on the parish facebook page.
