MILLSTREET ALTAR SOCIETY: 17th & 24th January, 2021 – Group D
We are now 10 days into the New Year and living with Level 5 Covid
Restrictions. These are challenging times for each of us – but we must
continue to stay safe and keep each other safe. Fortunately, our Churches
are remaining open for private worship – just a gentle reminder for those
visiting our Churches to please sanitise as you enter and leave.
May the Holy Family protect our families, homes and communities during
the weeks and months ahead……. Fr. Fitzgerald
ANNUAL MASS OF REMEMBERANCE
During the month of November, we have traditionally celebrated Mass for parishioners who had passed away during the previous 12 months but due to Covid19 restrictions we were unable to have these Masses in 2020. However, we have now decided to proceed with this Mass on Saturday 23rd January at 6.30p.m. During this Mass we will remember those whose funerals took place in Ballydaly, Cullen & Millstreet between November 2019 and December 2020. The Mass will be live-streamed on churchservices.tv/millstreet. This will be a Parish commemoration for our dead and I hope you will join us for this special Mass.
VINCENT DE PAUL: The members of the Society of St. Vincent De Paul wish to thank everyone who contributed so generously to our annual appeal before Christmas. Please remember that if you or anyone you know needs help during these difficult times please contact our local St. Vincent De Paul on (087) 9597900.
