Final preparations were made by Michael Conlon, Sacristan, on Sunday afternoon, and on Monday 18th May, after over two months of closed doors, Bishop Fintan turned the key and opened the doors of the Cathedral to welcome people to come and pray in person. We are very conscious of the need for all parishioners to be vigilant and observe the regulations asked of us for the good of the public health of everybody.

  • Please enter the Cathedral from the main door, exit by the Grotto in the old Baptistry.
  • Use Hand sanitizer at entrance.
  • Observe social distancing.
  • Sit/kneel only in the designated seats marked in green.
The Cathedral will open between 9am to 10.45am and 12noon to 7pm for private prayer.
Masses will be conducted behind closed doors.
We ask people to enter by the main door, observe social distancing, use hand sanitizer and exit by the Grotto door.
St Joseph’s Church will be open from 2pm to 4pm daily.
The Friary will reopen later in the week. Cloughleigh Oratory will remain closed.
We look forward to welcoming you to the House of the Father.
