The current very unpredictable spell of weather has led to the unfortunate postponement of Confirmation today in Myshall and Drumphea, tomorrow in Askea and on Friday in Bennekerry. The decision to postpone is taken at a local parish level with my complete support. I would like to emphasise how important health and safety is with all events and sacramental moments associated with our church. I urge all of you to look in on elderly relatives and neighbours and to heed the warnings and advice, as issued by the National Emergency Coordination Group and Met Eireann.

May the Lord keep all of us safe over these coming days and may we put our trust in Him and be aware of one another. Amen.

Bishop Denis
