20th March: Confirmation Day in Parish
The Cloyne Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes will take place from 31st May 2024 to 5th June 2024 led by Bishop William Crean D.D. Pilgrimage Director Very Rev. Tobias Bluitt P.P. Kanturk, Co. Cork.
A detailed religious programme has been organised by the Joe Walsh Tours team in conjunction with the Cloyne Diocese so pilgrims can have a very special time at the sanctuary. The pilgrimage is a fully escorted tour, including direct return flights from Cork to Lourdes, transfers, 5 nights hotel accommodation, and the support of our knowledgeable local guides and representatives.
Cost €899.00 per person from Cork to Lourdes.
The envelopes scheme for 2024 are delivered to the houses. If anyone would like to join the scheme, please contact Canon Donal O’Mahony or the Parish Office or the sacristan for more information please. You may also write your name on the slip of paper in the porch of the church and hand it into sacristy or give it to a priest or hand it in to parish office or drop in in the office door. The revenue from the rebate is very helpful and does not cost the individual anything extra. On everyone who contributes €250 or more per year or more a tax rebate can be claimed by the parish for the parish. With the ongoing rising costs of oil and electricity we need more people to join in the scheme and maintain our beautiful church. We thank all those who contribute on a regular basis through envelope or otherwise.
In recent times people are becoming more accustomed to using online Banking. There are two separate currents accounts in the Parish, one for the parish and various collections like Emigrants, Trocaire etc. The other current account is for the support of the two priests in the parish. The priests are usually supported in Offerings at Lent, Easter, Autumn and Christmas. Some donations are handed in with the November Mass Offerings.
