November: Praying for those who have died

During the month of November, we pray in a special way for those who have died. The traditional November lists of those who have died are available with envelopes at the doors of each of the Churches. You are welcome to write the names of your deceased loved ones on the list and return it to the Church. A Novena of Masses will be offered, beginning on 1st November, between Kinvara and Ballinderreen, for those named on the lists. It would be best if you could please return the lists before the beginning of those nine days. You can return them to any of the Churches, or to the Parish Office or to Kinvara Parochial House.

Mass for those who died during the year

There will be a special Mass in each of Ballinderreen and Kinvara Parishes for those who died since last November. The family members of those whose funerals took place in our parishes during the year are especially invited to the Mass. If you have a relative or friend who died since last November whom you would like remembered in this Mass, please contact Catherine in the Parish Office 086 8577644.
