Mount Argus Update – 3 October 2021

Masses at Mount Argus are at 10.00 am and 6.15 pm, Monday to Friday. On Saturday, Masses are at 11.00 am and 6.15 pm. Sunday Mass is at 8.00 am, 11.00 am and 4.00 pm. There is no 9.00 am Mass on Saturdays. We continue to livestream Mass every morning and evening as usual. The Bishops have said that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is still suspended. At present, the number permitted to attend Mass is 50% of the capacity of the church. Because of the increased numbers permitted, we are no longer taking bookings to attend Mass.

When you come into the church, we ask you to wear a mask, to use the hand sanitisers inside the church and to observe the one-way system of movement which is marked on the floor. We regret that the toilets are not available to visitors.

The church opens at 9.30 am from Monday to Friday and remains open until after the evening Mass. On Saturday the church opens at 10.30 am until after the evening Mass. On Sunday, the church opens at 7.30 am but closes after the 8.00 am Mass and re-opens at 10.30 am. This allows us to clean and prepare the church for Mass. The church remains open after the 11.00 am Mass on Sunday and closes after 4.00 pm Mass.

Confessions on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are from 11.00 to 11.30 am and from 4.00 to 4.30 pm, with the Blessing with the Relic of St Charles at 4.00 pm. Confessions on Saturdays are from 4.00 to 5.30 in the afternoon. There is Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4.00 to 6.00 pm.

We still need volunteers for cleaning and stewarding. If you are between the ages of 18 and 70, with no underlying health concerns, and are able to help with cleaning and stewarding at Mount Argus, even for one hour per week, please contact us either by email (office@mountargusparish.ie) or by phoning the office (01 4992000).
