Resumption of Public Celebration of Mass

Newry Cathedral News

The celebration of Mass with congregations present in church will resume from Friday, 26th March.

Is it safe for you to attend in person?

Please think carefully about your personal safety and vulnerability when deciding if you will attend Mass in person. The virus is still spreading!

Don’t come to church if you have these symptoms

  • a high temperature
  • a cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

If you have any symptoms associated with Covid-19, or if you have been in contact with someone else with Covid-19 symptoms in the last 30 days, please do not come to church.

Steps you can take

  • Wear a mask
  • Cooperate with stewards
  • Use the supplied sanitiser when you arrive in the church
  • Don’t arrive late

What we’re doing to help

We have taken precautions to ensure appropriate social distancing is maintained. Please cooperate with our stewards at all times. Our churches are cleaned between services.


Our churches are all operating under reduced capacity. When the congregation reaches capacity, the church doors will be closed. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
