In order to maintain a one-way system, entrance to Julianstown Church is through the Front Door.
Exits are through the Back door and through the Fire Exit on the left-hand side of the Altar.
At the moment, space is limited to 50 in both churches because of personal distancing requirements. We ask people to arrive early and to avoid congestion at doors. Stewards will direct people towards new sitting arrangements. Parishioners may not be able to sit in their usual places and we ask you to co-operate with the stewards in this regard. Remember the stewards who are volunteering are acting in the interest of your health and safety.
- Hand sanitizers will be provided at the entrance to churches. However, we recommend that parishioners bring their own hand sanitisers as well. We also ask parishioners to observe high standards of cough etiquette.
- For the time being, there will be no collection during Masses. As people depart, they are asked to deposit their donation in collection boxes at the exit doors.
- People who are vulnerable or unwell or feel uncomfortable about public gatherings, should stay at home. The YouTube Mass will continue for the time being.
- Churches will be sanitized after every mass.
- Toilets will be closed for the time being.
- In order to maintain social distancing, all daily Masses will be celebrated in the main bodies of both churches.
- While we will try to maintain social distancing, we cannot guarantee it, so it is recommended that all parishioners wear face coverings for the duration of the Mass.
- A demister has been bought from a medical supply company and this will be used to disinfect both churches after every Mass.
Thank you for your support and help with implementing these guidelines. We look forward to welcoming you back.
We welcome volunteers to act as stewards to direct the congregation in regard to the new guidelines. This would be important for the first few weeks until everyone is familiar with the new directives. We also welcome volunteers to help with sanitising the Church after Masses. Please contact us at 01-8412647 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com and we will contact you.
