Please bear in mind that this is subject to change, depending on public health. Numbers are likely to be restricted in the church. More details to follow, as soon as we have them.

PROVISIONAL FIRST COMMUNION DATE - SATURDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER 2020

Posted on 2020-07-10 12:49:21

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Lough Parish contacted the schools in the parish to try and put in place a preliminary date for First Holy Communion subject to Covid 19 Public Health guidelines.

It is proposed that Communions would take place in the Lough Church as follows:

  • Greenmount N.S. on Saturday 19th September 2020
  • Glasheen Boys’ School on Saturday 26th September 2020
  • Glasheen Girls’ School on Saturday 3rd October 2020

These dates are provisional, as we must adhere to all public health guidance that may arise between now and September. 

Closer to the dates, each school will be in contact around more specific details.  However, it is likely that the numbers in attendance on the day will need to be restricted for social distancing reasons.

In relation to First Confession, Fr. John Paul will provide a general absolution in the respective schools a few days before Communion.
