People were glad to be able to take part in the Eucharistic Procession last Saturday evening. Very appreciable numbers turned up and walked the route and others came for the Benediction in the cemetery.
Our thanks to the stewards and Canopy bearers, to the Gardai for seeing us safely across the road and route, to those who decorated their homes along the way and gave a welcome to the Eucharistic Lord. It was delightful to see the First Holy Communion children and the some of the Confirmation children present dressed as they were for the sacraments. We thank the parents who came along with them and collected the petals beforehand which the children put before the Lord in the procession. Our thanks to Adrian Buckley for the sound system and to Eileen Hanley for the transport. We thank Canon Cotter for leading us in prayer as we went along and to Kevin and Mons Owens for leading us in hymns. Our thanks to Breda Daly and Jackie Hanley for arranging the altar at the cemetery.
