Christmas 2020

The Celebration of Christmas – The feast of the birth of Christ, Our Saviour.

We look forward to celebrating Christmas and enabling as many people as possible to welcome the Christ child into their hearts through the celebration of Christmas Mass.

However, people who are in any way vulnerable may prefer to join in Christmas Mass from their homes through webcam, parish radio, television etc.  Lissycasey and Kildysart Churches now have webcams which may be accessed through their parish websites.

Due to the need to keep each other safe the number of people in Church is limited in accordance with public health guidelines. We have greatly increased the number of Christmas Mass in our pastoral area. The parishes of Kildysart and Coolmeen-Cranny have decided to allocate tickets for Christmas Masses so as to avoid exceeding the number of people permitted and to keep everyone safe. The tickets will be distributed after weekend Masses and are also available from our pastoral office.

We pray that this Christmas will be a times of blessing for us all.

The times of Christmas Masses in Coolmeen-Cranny parish are given below:
