Cancellations and postponements due to Covid-19

Friday March 13th 2020

A number of services and events scheduled to take place in Connor Diocese in the next few days and weeks have been cancelled due to concerns about the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

The Church of Ireland is continuing to follow Government advice. In the Republic of Ireland, following the announcement by An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar TD, on March 12, Church of Ireland Bishops have been issuing guidance to clergy and parishioners in relation to services and other events.

In Northern Ireland, parishes continue to be advised by the guidelines provided by the Public Health Agency.
