Congratulations to the boys and girls of Holy Family who received their First Holy Communion this weekend. Many thanks to their teachers and parents who helped prepare them.

 

While the diary is usually opened during the month of May to book Masses for the following year, we have found it is very difficult for families with a bereavement in the latter part of the year to book a first anniversary Mass. Consequently, the Mass Diary for 2020 will be available for booking Masses at the end of the Summer. Date will be confirmed later.

 

Our prayers and good wishes to all students who are preparing for exams and sitting exams at present.

 

Mark Moriarty from Killarney is a Seminarian in Maynooth. He has been with us since last September and will be leaving us after Easter to continue his studies. Mark has been involved with the First Communion pupils of Holy Family School, a Confirmation Class from Balloonagh School, the "Homecoming for Lent" project, Lectio Divina for Lent and other parish involvements. All our best wishes go with Mark on his future journey towards priesthood.

 

Sr Mary Gallagher of Missionary Sisters of The Holy Rosary wishes to thank our parishioners for the warm welcome she received last weekend & the generous response to her appeal.

It has been brought to our attention that the footpaths outside the Church grounds are being blocked or impeded for use by pedestrians, parents with buggies and wheelchair users. We encourage motorists to park their cars with consideration for others. We would appreciate your co-operation and consideration in this matter.

In recent weeks we have removed chewing gum from the Church carpet and seats. It is important to observe the one hour fast before receiving Holy Communion. We encourage parents to ensure that children are not chewing gum when attending Mass. We ask your co-operation in this regard.

The work to replace the covering on the church kneelers is now complete. This project was named as a project for the monies raised in the Silver Circle last year. Many thanks for your generous support.
