This Sun day is Safeguarding Sunday. The purpose of this Sunday is to raise awareness about safeguarding in our parishes and to remind us that each person has a part to play in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. Anyone who would like to report a current or past safeguarding concern is advised to contact the Designated Liaison Person for the Diocese on 087 6362780. People can also contact Towards Healing, a confidential free counselling service for people who have experienced institutional, clerical or religious abuse. Further information 1800 303 416, www.towardshealing.ie

is available during weekend Masses for families with young children. Mass can be viewed on TV screen.

From Monday, Sept. 16th weekday opening times will be 9.00am-12.30pm and 1.00pm-4.30pm. (Monday-Friday).

 

We hope this year’s Festival is an outstanding success and a fitting reward for the dedication and enthusiasm of all involved. We extend a very warm welcome to all who have returned home, to all visitors to Tralee and our Parish for the Rose of Tralee Festival. We hope you experience warmth and hospitality during your stay.
We are pleased to announce once again some Roses will attend 10am Mass this Sunday (August 25th), followed by refreshments in the Pastoral Centre. This is your chance to have a chat/ photograph with some of the Roses.

All welcome.  Céad Míle Fáilte

Our Parish Office will take bookings for 1st Anniversary Masses Thursday, September 26th. All other bookings will be taken from the following day Friday, September 27th.

 

We extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church and also to Tralee. We wish you a very happy stay.

Unfortunately, due to the heavy rain on Sunday last our Corpus Christi Procession could not go ahead. We would like to thank all involved in any way in this event especially the residents of Hawthorn Drive, Monavalley for all their preparations in hosting the Procession.

 

This was discussed at the recent Parish Pastoral Council Meeting. While the shared Anniversary Mass has proved to be popular with families wanting to have an Anniversary Mass at a weekend, it has become increasingly difficult with the long list of names to be read at the start and again at the middle of Mass. It was decided to read out the list of names and addresses at the start of Mass only, beginning from Saturday, June 8th.

All our best wishes go with Mark on his future journey towards priesthood.
