PARISH OF HOWTH   -   CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE

This year’s Carol service will be held in the Church on Monday 20th December at 7.30 p.m.  Anne Sorahan has agreed to lead the choirs this year and we invite all singers (choir members or not) who would like to take part to come to rehearsal on the following dates.  Sundays, 28th November and 12th December immediately after the 12 noon Mass.  The rehearsal will take place in the Church.  If you would like to be involved, please leave your name and contact telephone number with Barbara in the Parish Office.  We look forward to seeing you all there.

A HOWTH PARISH CHRISTMAS CARD
Every year we produce a 'Howth' Christmas card to send to parishioners that includes our Parish Christmas timetable.  Often parishioners ask if they could buy a similar card to send to family and friends.  This year we have done that.  The card features our Church's beautiful Nativity Window and the message inside is: Wishing You Peace and Joy this Christmas and every Blessing in the New Year.  In this way it bears the Christmas message uniquely from Howth.  Cards go on sale at the Sacristy from Friday 26th November at €5 per pack of five.

OUR DEAD
Please remember in your prayers MARGARET NOLAN who died last week.
We offer our sympathy to her family.  May she rest in peace.
