St. Patrick’s Mass Cancellation and Covid 19

Dear friends,

As you may know Sunday mass is being suspended this week in Dioceses all across Ireland until further notice. As yet this hasn’t happened in Paris. However, given today’s announcement by M. Le Premier Ministre issuing a ban on all gatherings of over 100 persons, the Mass for St.Patrick’s Weekend is now cancelled.

Additionally, I wish to advise that as and from now and on foot of the recent address given by President Macron, Sunday mass in the Chapelle St. Patrick will be suspended until further notice.

This is also in line with best advice issuing from the Church authorities in Ireland. Given the close confines of the Chapelle and its location within a residential building it is simply not possible to fully assure health and safety during the pandemic. I will of course continue to celebrate mass in private and to remain available to the Irish Community for pastoral emergencies.  Please help to advise members of our community who may not be on social media.

Fr. Hugh
