Machaire Rois Parish Notice (For full details, see this week’s Parish Bulletin)  Changes to Mass the Schedules & receiving of Holy Communion – Following on from a meeting of the Parish Liturgy Committee the following changes have been agreed:

The weekday evening Masses in the parish will be discontinued for the time being, except for the First Friday Mass in St Joseph’s Church which will remain at 7.30pm.

When a Funeral Mass occurs on a weekday, then the 10am Mass in St. Joseph’s will be put on with the Funeral Mass at the later time, usually 11am.

In the interests of health and hygiene we strongly discourage the reception of Holy Communion on the tongue. We would ask that out of concern for the well-being of the priests and Eucharistic

Ministers, along with concern for other members of the congregation who wish to receive Holy Communion, that all in the congregation should receive the Eucharist on their hands.
