Month: December 2015
All donations placed in the Candleabra while the crib is in position will be forwarded to Sr. Mary O’Malley to support her in her work of caring for and providing a future for children in Kenya.
Contributions given by us over the last number of years have enable her to save many children from terrible situations.
Every Euro counts. Please give any help that you can.
Copies of St. Mary’s most recent letter are placed near the Crib.
NEW NEW YEAR GREETINGS
As we prepare for another year I pray that it will be a year of many blessings for everyone in our parish.
May God bless and support you and yours at home and away during 2016.
Happy New Year
FEAST of the HOLY FAMILY
It was good to be together as the family of God’s people and to pray with the Holy Family of Nazareth for what is dear to all of us: our homes, our families, the Christian community, the family of our nation and people. May God bless us all and keep us united: The Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
