Mass intentions for the week from 12th June 2021

The temporary schedule of Mass times is in place in Ballinderreen and Kinvara Parishes during the pandemic.

To facilitate people who are working, Mass on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will continue at 7pm. An extra Vigil Mass is celebrated in Ballinderreen Church at 8.15pm on the Saturday evenings while the current situation lasts.

Please remember to sit 2m away from anybody not from your own household, to sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the Church, and to wear a face-covering in Church.
