I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your prayers, support, and presence in a variety of ways during 2020 which has been a very difficult year for all, especially at Christmas time.

Thank you for your understanding as we had to restrict numbers at difficult times and thank you to those who made the sacrifice to stay away so that others could be allowed come.

To all  those who decorated the churches and church grounds, provided stewarding during the Masses, the Readers and Eucharistic Ministers, the Sanitising teams, those who gave us the gift of music and song,  the Finance team and those who distributed the Christmas envelopes and boxes of weekly contribution envelopes, we send you all a special word of Thanks.

Thank you all for your generous offerings to the weekly envelopes and other collections throughout 2020 and your Christmas Dues, such generosity is a reflection of your goodwill which is very much valued and appreciated.

To our sacristans Pat in Ballybrown and Maria in Patrickswell for keeping an eye on everything.  To Pauline in the Parish Office for her patience and hard work during a most trying year.

We look forward to better things to come and may you receive all the blessings you need in 2021.
