From 6th September 2021, public health measures permit an increase in the numbers that can be admitted to Churches to up to 50% capacity until all capacity restrictions are due to be lifted on 22nd October.
1 metre physical distancing between those not of the same household is now required, both between those sitting beside each other, but also, please don’t sit directly behind somebody in the seat in front of you.
The opening of all seats will mean that the distribution of Holy Communion will need to go back to the method used in normal times. People should come up gently and not crowd around.
You are reminded to please sanitise your hands on entering and on leaving the Church.
The wearing of face-coverings continues to be mandatory, except for children under 13 years of age and those who are medically exempt.
50% capacity and hence the limit on the number of people for each Church is:
St Colman’s Church, Ballinderreen: 162 people
St Joseph’s Church, Kinvara: 175 people
St Kieran’s Church, Doorus: 70 people
St Colman’s Church, Kinvara: 197 people.
