Getting a Mass Card Signed.
While we welcome our parishioners calling to our doors, to get Mass Cards signed, there are times when we are not available. To ensure that your card is signed, it would probably be best to come into the Sacristy after any Mass. Or, if this does not suit, you are welcome to call at the Parish Office (the Presbytery door facing towards Skibbereen in North Street,) between the hours of 10.00 am -12.00 noon on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
Booking a Mass.
Each Church has a Mass Diary, which, with the exception of Skibbereen, does not leave the Sacristy. In order to book a Mass, please try and go to the Church concerned, and have the details entered into this diary.
The diary for Skibbereen is in the office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. To book a Mass visit or ring the office during office hours. You may of course, call to the Sacristy in the weekend .
