PARISH NOTES 22/05/2017 – 28/05/2017 



The annual sacristans collection will take place on Sunday 28th May. Our sacristans play a vital role in looking after our churches, being available for all the ceremonies and insuring the church is prepared for all the ceremonies. The sacristans are not paid and the annual collection is our way of showing our appreciation and thanks.  Envelopes for the collection are being distributed by the envelope distributors during the coming week.





Congratulations to the 12 children from Lisronagh School who received their first communion in Lisronagh church on Saturday last.  It was a beautiful day and a beautiful ceremony, the highlight being the dramatization of the Gospel story of "Jairus's daughter".  The children did themselves, their families and their school proud by the way they participated  in the ceremony. The gratitude of all goes to their teachers  Sarah Conway for all the work and effort she put into the ceremony and its preparation. A special word of thanks to the School Choir for enriching the ceremony and to their teacher Carmel O Meara for training them so well. We thank also Maura Forristal for playing for this special mass for the children. The ceremony ended with beautiful certificates being presented to each child as a memento of their special day. The children who received their Communion were, Katie Connolly, Katelyn Hayes, Ava O' Connell, Molly Mangan, Aoibheann Meredith, Joe O'Keeffe, Jason Cronin, Robbie Harney, Derry Harney-Nevin, Aeron O'Donnell, Jamie Phelan and Lukas Rekowski, Isadora de Menezes also took part. To all we say "Well done"
