Holy Week & Easter Arrangements:
The Holy Week and Easter Ceremonies will take place in Portmarnock Church behind
closed doors with just a few people present who would be required for the Ceremonies.

celebrating together in these most important events of our faith while isolated in our
homes but at one with each other in prayer, in faith and with God. To facilitate the
health of parishioners during the covid 19 emergency the Ceremonies will not take place
in the Churches of Kinsealy, Malahide, Yellow Walls or the Carmelite Convent. For local

A Message from Mary Kirk, Parish Pastoral Worker

As an act of solidarity for all those in our group of parishes and throughout the world who are affected by the Coronavirus, a group of parishioners suggested that  we might pray together at a certain time each day, asking for the protection of Jesus through Mary, His Mother, at this time.  We have decided to pray the Rosary each day at 3pm and we invite you to join in wherever you are at that time.  We hope that our prayers will bring consolation and healing,  and will help us to find a sense of connection and community with each other, even while we are physically distant.
