The Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Catholic Funeral Rituals and Practices on the island of Ireland: A Pilot Study.

Dr Michael Shortall, Registrar and Dr Aoife McGrath, Director of Pastoral Theology are academics working in the Centre for Mission and Ministries at the Pontifical University, St Patrick’s College, Maynooth. They are conducting a pilot study to explore the experience of Catholic funerals during the Covid-19 pandemic on this island, from the perspective of funeral directors, ministers, and people in local faith communities.

They would like to make their online survey available to as many Catholics as possible across the island.

Here is the link to the online survey:
