Trócaire East Africa emergency collection: Thank you

Bishop Brendan Kelly has written to say thanks for your contributions to the recent Trócaire East Africa emergency collection:

The returns so far received from parishes across the diocese reveal that there has been an outstanding response to the Trócaire Emergency Appeal for East Africa on the weekend of 6th/7th November. This is good news at a time of much uncertainty on so many fronts, and so good to see as we enter Advent, the season of promise and of hope unborn. We too must be agents of salvation for others, beginning in the here and now. Very many parishioners have chosen to be so, with great generosity, in response to this unfolding devastation for our brothers and sisters across five countries in East Africa. I write to say a simple ‘Thank you’. The Saviour born to us at Christmas will bless and reward you.

Trócaire Emergency Collection

The Bishops of Ireland have called for a national Church collection on the 6th and 7th of November to support Trócaire in providing life-saving aid to vulnerable communities in East Africa and DRC, where millions of people are being pushed to the edge of starvation.
Trócaire teams are already responding on the ground, and are ready to provide more life-saving assistance but need more resources. Any support the Parish can give to this Emergency Appeal will help the urgent work of Trócaire and their hardworking local partners. For more information see www.trocaire.org
There will be a basket at the back of the Churches this weekend into which you can place donations. Thank you.

Masses for those buried in the local cemeteries 2021

As the virus situation did not favour the celebration of Masses in the cemeteries during the Summer, instead for this year, we will have the Masses as part of our November prayer for the dead. With the deterioration in weather conditions at this time of year, Masses will be celebrated in the Churches for those buried in the cemeteries, and Fr Hugh will bless the graves in the days leading up to the Mass.
 
The dates are as follows:

 

Kinvara:

Mount Cross Cemetery, Kinvara
St Colman’s Church, Kinvara
For Mount Cross Cemetery, and other cemeteries of Kinvara Parish: Friday 12th November 2021 at 7pm in St Colman’s Church, Kinvara.
 
 
 
Ballinderreen:
Drumacoo Cemetery, Ballinderreen Parish
St Colman’s Church,
Ballinderreen
For Drumacoo Cemetery, and other cemeteries of Ballinderreen Parish: Friday 19th November 2021 at 7pm in Ballinderreen Church.
 
 
 
Doorus:
Doorus Cemetery

For Doorus and Parkmore Cemeteries: Friday 26th November at 7pm in Doorus Church.
 
 
The Mount Cross and Drumacoo cemetery committees will hold collections in conjunction with the Masses, for the costs involved in the upkeep of the cemeteries, and it would be good to support them, considering that no collections have been possible during the whole pandemic period.

All Saints 2021 Masses

On the Solemnity of All Saints, 1st November 2021, Mass will be celebrated in St Joseph’s Church, Kinvara at 10am and in Ballinderreen Church at 7pm.

The saints enjoy the beatific vision and unceasingly intercede for those still in earthly life. They also serve as a model and inspiration to us.’ – Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults, p.567
