Harvest Thanksgiving Mass: This weekend we thank God for our abundant harvest
of turf and crops this year and ask for God’s blessing for all people that we may
have food for our table and peace in our heart.
Our Annual Novena for departed relatives and friends will take place from Saturday 1st
November until Wednesday 5th November. We are unable to take individual mass bookings
during this time, but can accommodate mass bookings either side of these dates. As a mark of
respect to our departed relatives and friends who have passed away in the last year (those who
have been interred in our cemeteries or are originally from our parish) we will light individual
candles for them at all masses that weekend. We will also light one large candle remembering
all those who have gone before us. May they all Rest in Peace.

following best practice as specified by the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the
Catholic Church (NBSCCCI). Attached to the newsletter today is the Safeguarding Children
Statement for our parish. A copy of this and contact details for any safeguarding concerns can
be found in church porches, sacristies and parish hall. More details relating to safeguarding can
be found & If a parishioner
has any views or comments on how safeguarding could be improved in our parish please
contact the parish office or any of the Safeguarding Representatives.

and returned the form to the Parish Office. If you are paying Income Tax on; wages/salary
whether you are self employed or a PAYE worker; or are in receipt of a private pension, as a
registered charity - we can claim a tax rebate. For example if you have made a charitable
donation of €250 to our Parish and are paying income tax of any type, we can get as much as
€112.32 tax back from revenue on your donation – meaning the total value of your contribution
to our Parish is €362.32. Last year we received a refund of almost €10,000 which was used to
pay off the Parish Loan. If you have any queries or concerns about completing this form, please
do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office. Thank you.

Who does what at mass? At every mass you will notice that some members of the assembly
have different jobs. The collectors: the people who collect our gift of money during mass. The
Minister of the Eucharist: the person who helps to give out communion at mass. Music: many
parishes have choirs – groups of people who sing at mass. Their singing helps the whole
assembly to pray and we are all encouraged to join with the choir. Some parishes may have
people who lead the assembly in singing. These are called cantors.
Make yourself familiar with the Angels, and behold them frequently in spirit.
Without being seen, they are present with you.
