An organisation which represents 1,500 convenience stores nationwide has been threatened with legal action unless it withdraws a letter warning its members about the sale of pre-signed Mass cards.

The 2009 Charities Act bans the sale of such cards without the authority of a bishop or head of a religious order recognised by the Catholic Church.

Anyone breaching the section is liable to a fine of up to €300,000 and ten years’ imprisonment.
