News from Ireland

Our Sisters in Ireland, along with all parishioners and their pastors stay hopeful that next month restrictions on the celebration of communions and confirmations may be lifted.

In a statement on the diocesan website, Bishop Denis Nulty, Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin said: “We have done so much as individuals, as parishes, as communities, as counties and as a country. Better days are, we all feel, within touching distance. In this context, and in a recognition of the great sacrifice we have all already undertaken, I am asking parishes to continue to abide by current official guidelines.”
