Message from Bishop Fintan

The Government announcement earlier today requires that the attendance at any event including Mass must not exceed 100 people.

In light of this in the Diocese of Cork and Ross, all public Weekend Masses will be DISCONTINUED until further notice. This also refers to Masses for St. Patrick’s Day.

All Confirmations will be postponed.

Mass will continue to be live-streamed from the Cathedral at It is my hope to celebrate the 11.30 am Mass there each Sunday.

People are not bound by the Sunday Obligation.

Funerals, weddings, baptisms and weekday Masses may continue as long as the attendance does not exceed 100 people.

Let us keep one another in our prayers conscious of the hope and comfort which our faith brings, especially in these difficult times.

Yours sincerely in Christ

 ✠ Fintan Gavin

Bishop of Cork and Ross
