NEWSPAPER: There is a real need for us as Catholics to feed our faith on a daily basis. This is why our parish is partnering with The Irish Catholic newspaper with a special initiative for ten weeks since 9th May. Extra copies of the paper will be available for just €1 per edition for this time, and we encourage as many people as possible to pick it up. From hearing uplifting positive news from parishes around the country, to getting the Catholic perspective on the latest news, there is something for everyone in the paper. So please do pick up a copy, take time to read it throughout the week, and invest in your faith this Summer.

SYMPATHY is extended to the Cleary Family, Castlewood, Durrow, on their recent bereavement.

PRESENTATION CENTRE: The Presentation Centre beside the Catholic Church is available for hire. For further information please contact Angela on (087) 1928522.
