SUNDAY FUNERALS IN THE DIOCESE OF KERRY: Bishop Ray Browne has announced the following: From September 1st 2017, no funerals will take place on Sundays in all parishes in the Diocese of Kerry i.e. Mass, Funeral Service or Burial. Some people will have reservations about this decision. However, it has not been taken lightly but after extensive consultation with laity and clergy throughout the diocese. After September 1st 2017, Removals to the church can take place on either Saturday or Sunday evening. Mass on Monday.
This change is necessary for many reasons including the primary focus of Sunday Mass is the celebration of the Parish Mass; and Sunday Funerals will no longer be sustainable in
every parish since five parishes no longer have a resident priest. As regards Holy Days of Obligation the rule will apply to Christmas Day and St Patrick’s Day. On the other Holy Days of Obligation, the decision is left to the local parish.
