Mass Changes 2013
As announced at Masses last weekend the following changes will come into
place from January 2013.
1) Mass Intentions From January 2013 a maximum of three intentions
will be allowed at the Saturday evening and the Sunday Masses with
the exception of the 10am Sunday Mass in the Cathedral. This means
that at an individual Sunday Mass, three families will be able to have
their loved one’s prayed for. This change will allow more people to
have their family anniversary Mass celebrated on a Sunday, which
will be more convenient for many families
2) Funerals If a Funeral occurs on a Sunday it will be celebrated at
the following times.
(a) In the Cathedral at 10am
(b) In Killygarry at 10am and
(c) In Butlersbridge at 10.30am
If those times do not suit a family they have the option of having a removal
on the Sunday evening and the funeral at an agreed time on the Monday.
3) Months Mind Masses From January 2013 Months Mind Masses will
be celebrated at the following set times. On the first Saturday evening
of each month there will be a Mass reserved for Months Minds in the
Cathedral at 7.30pm. On the second Sunday of each month the Mass
will be at 10am in Killygarry. On the third Sunday Months Minds will
be in Butlersbridge at 10.30am and on the fourth Sunday, it will be in
the Resource Centre at 12 noon. There may on occasion be more than
one Months Mind intention celebrated at each Mass.
These changes will allow more people to have their loved one’s remembered
at a weekend Mass, which is more convenient for many families. At the
same time it will help to make the priests’ work load more manageable at a
time when there are less priests available and priests are covering larger
parish areas and assisting in neighbouring parishes.
