Open for Prayer
In challenging times like this people find strength, consolation and hope in prayer. We rediscover the value of the traditional prayers such as the Rosary, the Memorare, and St Patrick’s Breastplate etc. The obligation to be physically present at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days (including St. Patrick’s Day) is suspended for everybody until further notice.
Parishioners are also encouraged to pray at home, including especially prayers for the sick, for those who are caring for the sick and for all who are working so hard to protect us
All of these arrangements are under constant review. Please keep an eye on our social media for updates as they become available
Our Parishes Website: www.skibbereenandrath.ie
Our Diocesan website: www.corkandross.orgWe wish you every blessing in these coming weeks and we pray that, as a Christian community and as a nation, we may be able with God’s grace to overcome this significant challenge.

As part of a reorganisation in the Diocese, a structure called the Mission and Ministry office will begin on Oct 1st, and will incorporate the Pastoral Development office. We would like to thank Sr Karen Kent and Fr Charlie Kiely, who over the recent years have done the training for the Parish Assemblies and Parish Catechists and more recently the John Paul II awards.
We thank them and wish them well for their future.
