Mass Intentions

Fr. Joseph will continue to say Mass each morning privately.  

If you have an intention please write it out & place in an envelope with your donation.   Please drop your envelope into the Parish Office or in the Presbytery letterbox.  

Lent

Please make an effort to do something for Lent.  Here are just a few possibilities!

  • Pray at home with your family.

  • Support the Trócaire campaign.

  • Visit the Church. & light a candle.   (Church open from 11am-6pm daily)

  • Make the Stations of the Cross

  • Do one hour adoration per day.

  • Be reconciled with others.

Apostolate of Adoration's Invitation

How would you feel about doing 1 hour Adoration each day for Lent, and make this a National Adoration Crusade for this Lent.  
This can be done from your own home, creating your own prayer space.  It can also be done in the Church (11am - 6pm).  
A third option  is Google
eucharisticadoration.ie/adoration and you will have live Adoration.  

Trócaire

Every year Trócaire asks for your help during Lent to fund lifesaving programmes around the world.  
Families like Awut and Ajak’s in South Sudan (on this years Trócaire box) need your support  now more than ever.
Trócaire are appealing to you to continue your support this Lent.  
Resources, prayers and videos are available on www.trocaire.org.
Trócaire Boxes are being delivered to each house and are also available in the Church.  
The contents of each and every Trócaire box, no matter how small, come together to make a significant difference.
This virus knows no borders, but neither does our compassion.

Parish Envelopes

Parish Envelopes:  The new envelope boxes  are available for collection in the Parish Office on Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 10am till 2pm.
If you do not receive a box of envelopes, please contact the parish office at 041 9827384.
The weekly envelope is your way of funding the up-keep and development of our Church, Schools and Community Centre.  Thank you to those who continue to send in their envelopes weekly and to those who use the Standing Order system.

The Parish Office is also open for Mass Intentions, Mass Cards, booking of Weddings etc.


Priest Offerings:  There are five special Priest Offerings Envelopes included in your box of envelopes.  These envelopes are for the support and upkeep of the Priest.  
Again we thank those who contributed to the support of the Priest over the past year.

Collectors:  A special thank-you to those who continue to collect the Church envelopes.  We ask you to consider helping with the distribution and collection of the Church envelopes over the coming year.  Please contact the Presbytery.  If your envelope is not collected please drop it into the Parish office or the letterbox at the Presbytery.

Standing Orders:  Rather than using the weekly envelope system some parishioners have in recent years adopted the Standing Order System.  For your convenience we have enclosed a standing order form in your box of envelopes.  If you wish to use it make sure to return the completed form to the Presbytery.  
Standing Order Forms are also available in the Presbytery.


Suspension of Public Masses
