Please note that there will be no 9am Mass in Doorus Church on Sunday, 26th September 2018 due to the Mass being celebrated by Pope Francis in the Phoenix Park.
The other Masses in Ballinderreen and Kinvara will go ahead as normal.
Welcome to Monsignor Malachy Hallinan who will be celebrating the 10.30am Mass in Ballinderreen and the 12 noon Mass in St Colman’s Church, Kinvara on this Sunday, and thanks to him for giving Fr Hugh the opportunity to accompany the bus of parishioners travelling to the Phoenix Park for the Mass with Pope Francis. Mons. Malachy is a native of Ballinderreen Parish.
For those who have booked onto the parish buses to the occasions with Pope Francis during the World Meeting of Families, here are the times the buses will be leaving. Early departure times are necessary to allow for long delays associated with the movement of such large crowds.

The First Friday of the month of August is coming up, and so, Fr Hugh will bring Holy Communion to those who are housebound due to illness or old age, in Kinvara Parish on Thursday, 2nd August, and in Ballinderreen Parish on Friday 3rd August 2018. If anybody in the parish is not able to get to Mass at the moment, and would like to receive Communion at home, please contact Fr Hugh, or Catherine, the parish secretary, to be added to the list for a monthly visit.
It is important that our older parishioners and those whose health does not allow them to get to the Church, not be cut off from the life of the Church and the Sacraments.
