ST PATRICK’S DAY 2019
Next Sunday 17 March is St Patrick’s Day.
Vigil Mass will be celebrated in Irish on Saturday 16 March at 7.30 pm in St Eugene’s Moneyneena.
All Masses on 16 and 17 March for St Patrick's Day will be at the usual Saturday Vigil and Sunday Mass times.
In the event of the death of a loved one in the parish and the funeral is to take place in the parish of Ballinascreen or Desertmartin
a member of the family must inform Fr Madden or Fr Downey or Fr McGirr as soon as it is convenient. This allows for the family to receive the best possible support that the parish can offer at the time of a death and to enable them to make the necessary arrangements.
We welcome to the parishes of Ballinascreen and Desertmartin this weekend representatives from Trócaire who will promote and explain this year’s Trócaire Lenten Campaign. Trócaire boxes are now available at the back of each of the churches.
VISITATION OF SICK AND HOUSEBOUND
Fr Downey will visit the sick in his care on Monday 11, Thursday 14 and Friday 15 March.
Adoration in Holy Rosary Church on Monday 11 March, starts after 10.00 am Mass and ends at 7.25 pm. Mass 7.30 pm.
ST COLUMBA’S CHURCH STRAW
Straw Church reopens this weekend and we have been assured that the work will be completed by next Sunday.
Survey forms are still available in all the churches or from the Parish Office. Please complete one and return it on or before March 24. Alternatively, it may be completed online by following the link on the parish website.
We extend our prayerful sympathy to the family and relatives of:
Joseph Sargent, Cavanreagh Road,
