First Friday calls

We hope to resume first Friday calls in September subject to Government guidelines.



Thanks to all who continue to drop weekly envelopes to the church/parochial house or into the candle shrines in both churches and by standing order and/or bank transfer.  Your support is very much appreciated.

If you wish to contribute to the church by bank transfer, you can e-mail your request to the Parish at and we will contact you.



Guidelines for Returning for Masses

in Stamullen & Julianstown Parish




In Julianstown – please enter by the front door only (Road side).

In Stamullen – please enter through the doors at the car park side only.



Parishioners are asked to follow the direction of the stewards and to physically distance from each other in the seats.  Markers are on the seats to help achieve this goal of sitting approximately two meters apart.

In Stamullen this approximates to two people per seat and in Julianstown three per seat.  However, those living under the same roof, such as a family unit, can sit together.  For the moment people may not be able to sit in their usual or preferred places.  We ask for your patience and understanding in this regard.

In the interest of safety and insofar as possible, people are asked to remain in their seats for the duration of Mass, apart from Communion.



Collections will not be taken up at the Offertory.  Instead parishioners may place their envelopes and plate offerings in the boxes provided as they leave the Church.



In Julianstown, those who wish to receive Communion are invited to come up the middle aisle only and return by the side aisles.

In Stamullen, parishioners on the wings of the Church will be invited to receive Communion first followed by the main aisles.

In both Churches parishioners are requested to stay in their seats until invited to come forward.  If an overflow occurs in either Church, Communion will be distributed outside.  Communion is taken in the hand only.



In Stamullen, exits are by the main (front) door and the door on the right-hand side of the Altar (St. Patrick’s Statue).

In Julianstown, exits are through the back door on the car park side and the emergency door at the Altar will also be in use.



We advise parishioners to come early in order to guarantee a seat and it is also recommended to wear face coverings.  People who are vulnerable or unwell are advised to stay at home and, if they wish to join the parish community, to participate in the YouTube Mass which will continue to be celebrated as long as the need arises.


We are all learning together in a new situation and hopefully as time moves on these protocols can be changed or relaxed.  We ask for your patience and understanding as I welcome you back to active participation in Mass and the Eucharist.

Fr. Declan
