PARISH DRAW

The Parish Draw is taking a break for the summer months, mainly to give you a break! You are so generous whenever there is an appeal of any kind. So for the summer months, there will be one less request for money. Thank you so much for your continued support for the parish.


HOLY WEEK TIMETABLE - SOME CHANGES

Most of the times of the Services in Holy Week remain the same this year. However there are two significant changes. The mass of the Lord's Supper (24 March) will be celebrated at the earlier time of 6pm. This is to facilitate our older parishioners who prefer not to be out too late, especially when it is dark. For the same reason our Easter Vigil (26 March) will be celebrated at 7pm. Hopefully you will find these changes helpful.


SERIOUS WARNING

This notification is to inform you Fr Joseph Quinn, a priest of the Archdiocese of Armagh, is subject to a decree of the Cardinal Archbishop of Armagh, which states that he is not to present himself in public or in private in the role of a priest, is not to wear clerical attire and is to desist from being in the company of young females in any guise whatsoever.

Can we also remind you of this notice which was sent out previously:

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin wishes to make it known that Clive Lynn, also known as Cathal O’ Lionn, formerly a priest of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe USA, was found guilty and dismissed from the clerical state on the 12th November, 2004 by Pope John Paul II, as a penalty for the sexual abuse of minors. He is forbidden to present himself as a priest, wear clerical attire or perform acts of ministry that are reserved to the sacred priesthood. The faithful are to be alerted in particular that Mr. Lynn or O’Lionn is not a priest in good standing and is consequently prohibited from celebrating the Eucharist or performing any priestly ministry.
