FIRST HOLY COMMUNION CEREMONIES 2020: As previously announced the First Holy Communion Ceremonies for Millstreet National Schools will take place on next Saturday at the following times: Scoil Mhuire Boys N.S. at 10.00 and Presentation Girls N.S. at 12.30p.m.

However due to the current restrictions put in place by NPHET and our Government the numbers able to attend the ceremony are restricted and each family with a child for First Holy Communion have been informed of the number able to attend.

As our First Holy Communion children traditionally attend the 11.30a.m. Mass on the day after receiving First Communion I would encourage our congregation who regularly attend 11.30a.m. Sunday Mass to continue to contact our Parish Office and arrange to attend an alternative weekend Mass and I want to thank those who have done this already. I appreciate your continued co-operation and understanding during these challenging times but the safety of everyone attending our Masses and the compliance with guidelines is of the utmost importance.



CULLEN & DISTRICT SPECIAL NEEDS ASSOCIATION:  Committee meeting on Monday night (14th) at 8.00p.m.

KNOCKNAGREE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT GROUP: Drive in bingo on Sunday 13th September at 1.00p.m.

RADIO MARIA can be accessed via SAORVIEW (channel 210 or 411). Mass & the Rosary are broadcast daily.
