In these extraordinary times when we cannot gather as a Christian Community to celebrate Mass, let us unite ourselves spiritually to the Mass as it is being celebrated in our churches.
You can do this by joining broadcast Masses on radio, parish radio or television or via the internet.
If these are not available, you are encouraged to pray the following prayers at the normal time for the celebration of Mass on Sunday or a Weekday or at any other suitable time. These prayers can be prayed alone or with your family.
If possible, prepare a suitable prayer space with a crucifix, holy picture or even a simple candle.
Join the Clonfert Diocesan Pilgrimage to Győr where pilgrims can venerate the miraculous painting of Our Lady of Consolation, taken to Győr by Bishop Lynch of Clonfert while in exile during the Cromwellian Wars.
