The weather in recent times added to the enjoyment of the St. Patrick’s Day Parades.The people of Carriganima had their’s on Sunday (March 20) and as always they didn’t disappoint. It was very well supported and like all such events, it draws communities together.

This is Holy Week and Church Services will get top priority in the run-up to Easter Sunday, which is regarded in many countries as being more important than Christmas itself.
On Wednesday we will have the Penitential Rite in our Church, which proved so popular last time. It will be held from 7.30 to 8.30 .Visiting priests will be available for Confessions and the Blessed Sacrement will be exposed.
