World Meeting of Families - tickets
The parish has tickets available for parishioners for the Papal Mass in the Phoenix Park (3pm, Sunday, August 26th). Please contact the parish office (046 943 1251).
A bus is organised from the parish and will bring parishioners to the Mass. Details to follow.
Thank you to all who came last Sunday and thank you to the cemetery staff. We would like some feedback from parishioners as to how they felt about the 3pm time change and should we continue for next year?
Pope Francis has appointed Fr Tom Deenihan from Cork as new Bishop of Meath. Bishop Michael Smith has retired after 34 years. Our prayers are with both at this time. Bishop Elect Tom Deenihan will be ordained in the Cathedral in Mullingar on Sunday, September 2nd.
St Patrick’s Church - Restoration Project
Work continues on the church walls, windows and roof. This project is being funded by the parish through the weekly plate and envelope collection The parish has no other source of income, loans have been obtained from the diocese (€75,000) and from the bank (€300,000 so far). These loans will be repaid over a period of four years. We appeal to all parishioners to continue your contributions to parish funds in order to complete and pay for this restoration project. All donations are gratefully accepted. Thank you.
