We welcome Families and Friends of Deceased Parish Members this Saturday to our evening mass in Patrickswell and in Ballybrown to our 8.00pm mass who have passed away during the past year.

For extended family or friends who died during the past year there is a book in the church where you may write their names and a remembrance tree is there to place their name on it.

National Collection for the World Meeting of Families 2018

Will take place at all masses throughout the country next weekend (10th and 11th November ) which will be the Fifth National Collection for WMOF 2018.  The overall cost to the Church in Ireland for hosting the WMOF comes to €19.4m.  To date €15.4m has been raised by way of local Church collections and other donations.  This leaves a deficit of €4m.  Next weekend’s national appeal is to support the WMOF and reduce the debt. Your generosity will be very much appreciated.  Thank you.

Purgatorial Offerings: ‘It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins”. (2 Mac. 12:46)

There will be special envelopes for the Purgatorial Offerings available in both Churches for those not using the weekly envelopes.  Masses for the deceased are celebrated on the First Fridays and other times throughout the year.
