Kieran O’Mahony will continue the course on the Gospel of Luke focused on the Sunday readings.  This will be over the next three Monday evenings at 7.30 p.m. in the Boys’ National School.  The evening will consist of a 45 minute talk followed by 45 minutes discussion.  All Welcome.

  • A talk entitled “Events that changed Europe – 1200 to 1600 A.D.” will be held in the Maynooth Community Space at 8 p.m. on Monday 16th of November.
  • CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL A Christmas Tree Festival will be held from the 26th – 29th November 2015 in St Mary’s Church of Ireland, Maynooth. The festival’s aim is to create a community celebration of Christmas and at the same time to raise funds for our Churches and also help with our charitable giving. The Festival, which you could in some ways compare to a flower festival, seeks to tell the story of Christmas and the story of our local communities through the medium of Christmas trees. Each tree will be uniquely made or decorated to tell its part in the story. The Catholic parish of Maynooth is invited to provide a tree for the Festival. We are looking for a parishioner or group of parishioners who might be creative in using your imagination to create something eye catching. Further details please contact the Parish Office.
  • Maynooth Scouts wish to thank all those who supported our 12 Days of Christmas Ticket sales last weekend. Wednesday Bingo – Bingo is taking place every Wednesday at 8:30 pm in the Geraldine Hall, in Harbour Field, organised by the Maynooth Scouts. Please come along and bring a friend.
