“They said to each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?” Luke 24:32
The Parish Pastoral Council aims to promote a parish with Jesus at the centre of its mission; making welcome searchers and believers. We strive to reach out to all in our community, sharing responsibility on the journey of faith.
Following the latest government directives (March 27th), and the strict instruction that people must stay at home, the church will no longer open during the day for people to visit.
We, the priests of Assumption Parish, will offer Mass for the intentions of all the people of the parish, every day, at 10am. It will not be possible for people to physically attend this Mass but all can participate online via our webcam at www.assumptionballyfermot.ie. This Mass will also be recorded so it can be viewed at any time during the day.
All other ceremonies, gatherings and meetings have been cancelled until further notice.
Funerals by arrangement, via the Undertakers, and strictly applying the government and HSE directives around preventing the spread of the Covid19 virus.
These are strange, difficult and anxious days, which is why it’s all the more important that we pray with and for each other. Someone once said, ‘it’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness’. And remember, at the end of the period of Lenten sacrifice is the hope and glory of the resurrection.
