Dromtariffe News Letter

My dear parishioners,


I hope you are not finding level five very hard and that we will weaken the virus very much during November.  In the meantime, I will continue with private Masses for Station Districts as on the weekly newsletter.  A copy of newsletters is on the noticeboard of each church & Millstreet.ie, diocesan website, Duhallow area newsletter on Facebook, Dromtariffe GAA & the primary schools’ websites.


During November we remember especially all our beloved dead and I will offer Mass each Monday in November at 7.30pm as well as All Souls Day at 7.30pm for all those names you have handed in on your November lists.  We will pray also for those in the named Station Districts.  Communication is very difficult in these times so I hope you will pass on this message. Thanks.


As usual we will offer Mass for all those who died since November Memorial Mass last year.  A copy of their names will be on the newsletters each week and on the noticeboards.  We pray that the God of life will give them all eternal life. 


Finally, a sincere word of thanks to the many who have handed in fund envelopes, dues and November envelopes.  You are so generous and may God reward your goodness and kindness.


Keep safe and well


Fr Tom

P.S. I will also go privately to our graveyards and bless the graves and pray for the dead.
