Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will resume from this Thursday onward.  Adoration prayer will take place each Thursday from 10.00am (after Mass) until 6.00pm (ending with Benediction).  This is a great form of prayer for individuals and the community of the parish.  A list is being compiled of possible adorers for each hour.  If you feel that you might be able to give an hour to this prayer perhaps you might place your name on the hourly list on the table in the porch area.

Your Help would be appreciated in helping us to compile the 2018  List for SUNDAY COLLECTION   ENVELOPES – Any  NEW  PARISHIONER  who would like a box of envelopes, or any parishioner who   has  CHANGED  ADDRESS  since this time last year, should leave their name and address in the Sacristy after any of the Masses, or telephone the Parochial  House  074 9551117.

We would also ask that those who normally distribute the envelopes would contact either Fr Gerard after Mass or the Parochial House to confirm that they are able to do so again this year or if anyone else wishes to help with this task, please feel free to do so.  Thank You

As from the 1st January, I would kindly ask that all Church Gate collections be taken up at the entrance gates alone rather than outside the door of the Church as is presently the practice.  This is in keeping with the conditions of the permits granted by An Garda Siochana and of the practice pertaining to other Church Gate collections nationwide.  This excludes the St Vincent De Paul Society as it is a Church affiliate.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter – Fr Gerard.

Last   week’s   OFFERTORY   COLLECTION     amounted   to    € 1,915.00.  Thank  You
