During the month of August, the Parish Pastoral Council invited parishioners to contribute to a gift for Fr Niall. He was invited back for a presentation at the end of the 12.30pm Mass on Sunday Sept 13th. Many thanks to all who contributed so generously to the parish gift.
Bishop Ray Browne has announced a number of clerical changes. Fr Niall who has been in this parish for 3 years has been appointed to Fossa Parish as Parish Priest. We have been enriched by his ministry and we wish him well in his new appointment. Fr. Amos Ruto has been appointed as Curate in this Parish. We look forward to making him welcome. The changes took effect from last Wednesday August 5th.
Jack Charlton has been laid to rest,
the memories they are mighty.
The victory over England at Stuttgart,
the euphoria of Italia ’90!
He lifted our people and country,
The likes we’ve never known.
“Olé, Olé” was all the go – and not,
You’ll Never Walk Alone!
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.
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.
