 For the benefit of parishioners who do not have access to the internet, RTÉ will air Mass every weekday on TV at 10.30am from St Eunan's and St Columba's Cathedral, Letterkenny, on RTÉ News Now. RTÉ News Now can be accessed on Saorview (channel 21), Sky (521), Virgin Media (200), or Eir (517).

 Sacrament of Reconciliation: A number of people have contacted the parish in recent days to request the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). This is understandable, particularly in preparation for Holy Week and Easter. However, given the present extraordinary circumstances where everyone is obliged to stay at home and ‘physical distancing’ is mandatory, the Church is unable to provide the celebration of the sacraments in the normal way, including the sacrament of Confession. For the moment, while we might not have the immediate assurance of the Sacrament in the priest’s words: “I absolve you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,” we do have the assurance of Christ’s words: “Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.” If you desire to celebrate the sacrament of Confession, simply pray to God, asking for forgiveness for your sins, and say an Act of Contrition, with the true intention to confess your sins to a priest as soon as you are able, so that you might be healed and fully reconciled. Let us look forward in hope to the time when the present crisis has passed and we can once again resume normal Church life, including the celebration of the sacraments.   Further information available here
