Church Notices – St. Mary’s 2nd April, 2017
- Today is the 5th Sunday of Lent.
- Weekday Masses during Lent will be at 8.00 a.m., 10.00 a.m. and 7.30 p.m.
- The second Collection this weekend is for the World Meeting of Families. It will replace the SHARE Collection. Pope Francis has personally chosen Dublin to be the host diocese for the World Meeting of Families from 21-26 August 2018. Planning for this great national and international celebration of faith is well underway. Hosting this important event requires an enormous amount of planning and funding. In this regard a second national collection will be held this weekend. Your support for this collection would be greatly appreciated. We take this opportunity to thank you for your support for last year’s first national collection.
- St Mary’s Boys’ National School will have its Annual Sponsored Walk/Family Fun Day on Sunday. This event will be starting in the school yard and all walkers and their families will return to the school yard afterwards for a family fun day. They would appreciate if all cars could be moved from the yard immediately after the 11.30 a.m. Mass on Sunday as the car park will be closed from 12.30 p.m. – 5.15 pm.
- Bible Study Group will meet in the Parochial House on Thursday next at 8.00 p.m.
- The Church Gate Collection this weekend is for the Mellon Educate Trust. Two of our parishioners James Stack and John Kavanagh will be travelling for the 10th successive year to a township in South Africa to assist in a school build for impoverished children. Your support is very much appreciated.
