The Missionary Society of St Columban’s annual Cemetery Sunday celebration will be restricted to members of the community at Dalgan again this year due to Covid restrictions but the Mass will be available online.
In a message to the community and the wider Columban family, Regional Director, Fr Ray Husband said, “Although we all hope that we are coming to the end of lockdowns and restrictions, we think it better not to risk our usual gathering for our Cemetery Sunday this year.”
“We always look forward to meeting the families and friends of our deceased Columbans so it is with regret that we have to cancel again.”
The blessing of the graves will take place in the Cemetery at 11am on Sunday with just the Columban community present.
However, the Mass will be recorded and will be available online on Sunday the 13th June at 6pm at:
Once the video has been streamed, it will be available on this YouTube channel for the rest of the week.
If you know any Columban families who you think would be interested in seeing the Mass, please share these details with them as we do not have email addresses for everyone.
In these uncertain times we continue to pray for God’s protection on us all.
