St. Marys Church Julianstown

Work has already begun and will be concluded in the coming week, painting the three doors in the church, front, back and emergency exit.


The Sacristy is also being painted.  The two doors on the school gable end side, are beyond repair and new ones are being made.  This work is possible due to your support and we thank you and ask you to continue with your generosity.

Directives from the Diocese of Meath

for Celebration of Funeral & Wedding Masses

In our Parish according to Diocesan guidelines, Eulogies are not part of the Funeral Mass;  an option for a eulogy to take place is in the Funeral Home or in the Cemetery, after the burial.

In celebrations of the Eucharist, Readings at the Mass must be taken from the Bible (Lectionary).  Our church is a Sacred space with the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and in the building sacred Music or Hymns are only permitted during the celebration of the Eucharist, be it at a funeral or wedding Mass.


Pre-signed Mass cards

The government brought in rules (Charities Act 2009) to stop the selling of pre-signed  Mass cards in  shops.  Sadly these laws are being ignored by some.


In our Parish when a mass card is signed, be it a mass for the deceased, get well mass, or a special intention, the date in which the mass is to be offered is written on the card and is also published in our bulletin.  This assures the person getting the mass, and the family or person receiving it, if so desired, can attend, or at least they know when it being offered and where.


Mass & Bouquet Cards are available for signing if you wish to get a mass in the parish and are available in each of our Churches and the Parochial House.
