Lighting the Advent Candle 2020
My dear parishioners,
We are coming near the end of a strange and disturbing year. We hope that next year will bring a certain amount of normality back. Many have told me that they are delighted that we can have Mass again although in the Rota system of Station Districts. As per regulations we are limited to 50 people in the church.
So that as many as possible can hear & pray the Mass on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we will have live streaming (please God) into everyone’s home that has a computer, from both churches, Derrinagree on 24th at 7.30pm & Dromagh on Christmas Day at 10.30am. We hope that families will be able to gather together at home & celebrate Christmas in this way as we would only be able to have 50 in the church & that would be a disaster for so many left outside.
Further, in order that people will be able to go to Communion for Christmas, with the help of Fr Bartie we will have two Masses at 7.30pm in both Churches in the fortnight leading up to Christmas. Details in next week’s newsletter. Please God we will reach out to as many as possible in this way so that the coming of God among us can be celebrated even in these difficult times.
Peace & grace to all,

- CHECK THIS OUT on dioceseofkerry.ie Bishop Ray Browne recommends:
I recommend the website of the Irish Catholic Bishops Conference. It is the place to find up to date news on the Church in Ireland and details of many Church services.
There is information on education, evangelization, outreach to emigrants and Irish people in prison abroad. I highly recommend this. + Ray
