Important Notice as of Immediate effect


Due to the current COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, and in accordance with Government guidelines, and with new Diocesan Norms introduced by Bishop Duffy, the following take place with immediate effect:


ALL public Masses in the Diocese of Clogher are suspended with immediate effect.


Daily Mass will be celebrated in St Joseph’s church, Carrickmacross, at 10am Monday to Saturday, with Sunday Mass celebrated at 12 noon. St Patrick’s Day Mass will also take place at 12 noon.


These celebrations will take place without a congregation present, so we are asking all parishioners NOT TO ATTEND MASS in the parish until further notice.


People may tune into the celebration of Mass in St. Joseph’s at these times via the webcam live streaming www.carrickmacrossparish.ie or www.mcnmedia.tv or on the parish radio broadcast on (92.1 FM) and make a spiritual Communion by inviting Jesus to come into your heart and soul.


There will be NO celebration of the Mass in St John the Evangelist Church, Raferagh, or in St. Michael’s Church, Corduff, until further notice.


All Mass intentions scheduled for any given day will be united together and offered up in the one broadcast Mass scheduled for that day.


Those who are unable to access these facilities are encouraged to pray in their own homes at these designated times.


St Joseph’s church will be closed to the public during Eucharistic celebrations, but will remain open at all other times for private prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle.


The Blessed Sacrament Chapel will remain CLOSED until further notice.


Funeral Masses will take place in the church but the congregation will be restricted to immediate family members only.


For information concerning scheduled baptisms please contact the parish office on 042 966 1231


The Sacrament of Reconciliation will take place on Saturdays at 11 am.


The planned daily distribution of Holy Communion will now NOT take place.


All parish meetings scheduled for the coming weeks are postponed until further notice.


In this time of uncertainty we encourage family prayer to continue in the home. May God bless us all and the people of Ireland in these difficult times. St. Patrick, pray for us. Our Lady, Queen of Ireland, pray for us.
