Please find on this page some COVID-19 related resources for parishes, parish employees, volunteers and parishioners.

Note

These are living documents which means as Government restrictions and Public Health guidelines evolve, these documents and resources will also evolve to reflect new Government advice and changes to protocols when they emerge.

All guidelines and resources have been developed in line with the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business and the Return to Work Safely Protocol, based on the latest health guidance available from the Department of Health and the HSE.

On the Return to Public Worship (June 23, 2020)

National Framework Document – Kildare and Leighlin Diocese – this must be completed by every parish prior to their return to public worship which can take place on or after June 29

Once the National Framework Document has been completed, the Declaration of Readiness must be completed, signed and returned to Bishop’s House.
