Today is the 1st Sunday of Advent.
Please be guided by our stewards with regards to seating, receiving Communion and leaving the Church. We ask that you please continue to wear a facemask and sanitise your hands when you come into the Church and when you leave.
As there will be no basket collections at the moment – envelopes for the First and Second Collections are available in the porches. These can be placed in the baskets in front of the Altar during Mass or please hand them into the Parish Office.
Christmas cards to support the work of St Brigid’s Hospice and Homecare will be on sale after all Masses this weekend at the Parish Centre. Cards cost €5.00 per pack. Thank you for supporting St Brigid’s Hospice.
The Parish Newsletter will be available after Mass. Please take a copy on your way out.
Just a reminder – The St Vincent de Paul’s Annual Appeal will take place this year on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th December. The funds raised will be used locally for Maynooth residents. Donation envelopes are available in the Church porch and we would be grateful if you would return your donation to St Mary’s Parish Office or in the Church during Mass. Alternatively, and should you prefer, you can donate online at svp.ie/maynooth. The members of SVP thank you for supporting us in our work for the disadvantaged in our community.
