Newry Cathedral News

Members of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference gathered in-person recently for their Spring 2022 General Meeting at Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth.

Emphasising the centrality of the Sunday Obligation to the Catholic Faith, bishops said, “We pray in the Mass that it is ‘indeed right and just, our duty and our salvation’ to give thanks to the Lord, and the Sunday Eucharist is our greatest act of thanksgiving.

During the Season of Lent, we encourage everyone to return to Sunday and weekday Mass in our churches, welcoming each other back as we gather once more together.

From Easter Sunday, 17th April, this will once again be deemed an essential expression of faith for all in our Church in Ireland.

As always, those whose health is vulnerable or who are unwell will not be under
any obligation to attend Mass, and should keep themselves safe and pray at home until they are better.
