The obligation to attend Mass

Considering the current situation, all the faithful are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation.

Bishop Treanor has announced the suspension of all public Masses in the parishes of the Diocese of Down & Connor  as of Tuesday 17th March, until further notice-as a result of the Coronavirus Outbreak.  Priests will continue to celebrate Masses privately for their parishioners in their respective parish churches

In the Derriaghy-Colin Pastoral Community, Mass will be streamed online  for the remainder of this week from Saint Colman’s Church in the parish of Derriaghy at the following times:

Wednesday 18th 9.30am

Thursday 19th 9.30am

Friday 20th 9.30am


The Masses will take place without a congregation being present.
