COVID-19 has changed all our lives.  For health reasons we cannot gather for Mass. We have recently installed a new webcam facility in both Keel and Kiltallagh Churches. From the comfort of your homes, you can join in for Sunday Masses, Weekday Masses, Funerals, Weddings, Baptisms, and other Liturgical Celebrations.  It is important that Priests and people can connect with one another. COVID-19 does not allow home visits. We are all struggling with this. On my own behalf and on behalf of Fr. Kevin and Fr. Kieran we wish God’s blessings on all of you.   Fr. Danny Broderick
