Christmas this year will be different. The challenge parishes face, as a result of the necessary Covid 19 restrictions is trying to find a workable solution. Bishop Duffy has offered the following option for this season. Families can attend mass at some point during the 12 days of Christmas – from Christmas eve until the Feast of the Epiphany on 6th January. Spreading the mass over the twelve days will help to alleviate the pressure around numbers who can attend each mass. Also to help the issue additional masses will be said. On Christmas Eve there will be mass in Tullycorbet and Ballintra at 5pm while in St. Patrick’s there will be mass at 6-30pm and 8-30pm. On Christmas Day there will be  mass in Tullycorbet and Ballintra at 10am and in St. Patrick’s at 8-30am and 12-15pm. The parish asks that parishioners continue to respect the helpers.  All masses from St. Patrick’s can be viewed via the following link:
It is also hoped that webcams will be installed in Tullycorbet and Ballintra before Christmas.
