SUMMER MASS TIMES

As it gets increasingly difficult to find priests to cover Masses when one of the priests of the parish is away, the following changes are being made to Mass times in Ballinascreen and Desertmartin Parishes.

Begining next weekend, Saturday 30 June, there will be no Saturday Vigil Mass in St Eugene’s Moneyneena at 7.30 pm.

In St Patrick’s Keenaught the Saturday Vigil Mass will be at the new time of 7.30 pm.

On Sunday mornings there will be no 11.30 am Mass in St Aptrick’s Keenaught. This new arrangement will be reviewed at the end of the summer months.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

Adoration in Holy Rosary Church on Monday June 25, commences after 10.00 am Mass and concludes with Mass at 7.30 pm.

DIOCESAN PASTORAL PLAN

‘God is Love’

Bishop McKeown has recently announced the publication of a Diocesan Pastoral Plan for 2018-2021 in the diocese, ‘God is Love’. The Plan is the result of a two-year programme of work by the Interim Diocesan Pastoral Council, consisting of 14 men and women - laity from across the diocese, Religious and clergy.

A pdf version of it is available to view and download on the diocesan website

www.derrydiocese.org

You are invited to read it. The main work of implementing the Plan will begin after the summer break. Bishop McKeown asks for your prayers and support, in the knowledge that everything done in faith and love will bear fruit in God’s own good time.
