Priests should not feel extra pressure while celebrating online mass

The former parish of Killenummery and Killery on the Sligo/Leitrim border has rejected the suggestion that priests feel they are being judged by their performance of online mass.

Since churches were closed for public celebration many parishes have streamed mass through Zoom or Facebook.

The Association of Catholic Priests wants to remind people that this format is new, and to have patience.

Fr Vincent Connaughton, former Parish Priest of  Killenummery and Killery says priests should never feel that they are being judged while celebrating mass.
