Further update regarding Covid-19 Outbreak


Dear Parishioners of Knocklyon, this is a difficult time for all of us. We pray that with God’s help and by helping one another we can get through this crisis together.


In light of the measures put forward by the Government,

we are cancelling all Sunday and weekday masses until further notice.


The church will however remain open from 8am to 7pm everyday if any of you would like to come in and say a prayer or light a candle.


 If we can assist anyone, we, the priests of the parish, are available. 


 Please refer to our website for further updates. We entrust each of you to the loving care of God our Father.


Thank you again for your understanding at this difficult time.
