The Irish Bishops’ Conference has issued guidelines in relation to the celebration of Baptism which will continue to be followed. 

Only immediate family should attend the celebration of Baptism. People who might be susceptible to severe reactions to the virus should not attend.

Funerals:  We appreciate that a bereavement is a very sensitive time in the life of any family and that the support of friends and neighbours is an integral part of the grieving and healing process. This has involved the tradition of expressing sympathy by attendance at the funeral rites and making physical contact with the bereaved. In the light of the guidelines received we ask that only immediate family and close friends would attend the funeral liturgy, observing the protocols already mentioned. 

At such a time as this, a thoughtful card or note expressing sympathy might be effective in expressing our solidarity with the bereaved
