SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (03/13)
“You shall be my
Witnesses…”Parish Preparation for Confirmation Programme
Today at the 10.30 FAMILY MASS we welcome the young people of the parish who
will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation later this year. The young people and their parents will take
an active part in the Liturgy today. We
invite the congregation to join with the young people and their parents in
making this a very special and prayerful celebration of the Eucharist and to
pray for the young people at this important time in their lives. A special thanks to the musicians, the
parents who helped prepare for the Mass, to Mr. Burke the 6th class
teacher at Scoil Mhuire, to Fr. Kilian Brennan who regularly visits the class
and of course to the young people and their parents.
