Reopening of St Sylvester’s Church

We hope to reopen St Sylvester’s Church on June 2nd. When the Church reopens,
it will be for private personal visits for an hour or two initially. Entry and exit
will be by different doors with a one-way system in operation. Doors will remain
open. A limited number of people will be able to be in the Church at any one time
and spending no more that a few minutes in the Church. There will be no seating
available. People will be asked to stand in designated places to facilitate social
distancing. Hand sanitiser dispensers will be in place. Exercising personal responsibility
and consideration of others will be important. It may seem complicated but
it will be no more complicated from the way that we now live life in general. The
GOOD NEWS is that the Church will be open again.

FAMILY MASS ON WEBCAM FROM YELLOW WALLS CHURCH – CONFIRMATION THEME

On Sunday, 31st May 2020, at 10.00am we will have our Webcam Family Mass from Yellow Walls Church (www.yellowwallsparish.ie). We hope that the Mass will help all children and families connect to a Mass in which they can feel a sense of involvement. Attached is a file with colouring pictures along with the readings, prayers and hymns for the Mass – Click below.

This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday when we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles. Our Mass will have a special focus for those still preparing for Confirmation because their ceremonies had to be postponed. The Mass will begin with lighting a candle for the Confirmation Pupils in each of the schools of our Parish Grouping.

In the attached file, among the colouring pictures at the start, are a number of exercises for the Confirmation pupils to consider doing.  This week we are looking at the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. We hope the Confirmation pupils will have a go at the exercises and enjoy them. We hope that these exercises will help them feel a connection to their local parish. We also hope that they will link into the Mass on Sunday and know that they are an important part of their local Christian Community.

We invite parents to connect into the Mass with your children of all ages on Sunday morning. There is also a link to the document for the Mass on the parish website: www.malahideparish.ie  Every blessing and good wish, Fr. Kevin Moore.
