All will be welcome. Sincere thanks to those making the preparations for the Mass.

The Mount Cross Cemetery Committee will hold a collection after the Mass to support the ongoing work of upkeeping the cemetery, because materials have to be purchased, lawnmowers fuelled, machinery serviced, etc.

If the weather is inclement, the Mass would move to St Colman’s Church, Kinvara, and an announcement would be made beforehand on the parish Facebook page.
