You may be aware of the new data regulations[GDPR] which have come into force. These will have an effect on various aspects of the parish, and the publishing of names of the sick is one such issue. . You can continue to submit requests for Mass to be offered for people who are sick, giving their name in order for the priest to offer Mass. However, the sic person’s name will only appear in the Bulletin if a written note is included that you are authorised to request this.

Parents who are having children baptised and couples being married in the parish will also be asked for permission for names to appear in the bulletin.
