CHURCH NOTICES

 

ST. MARYS’ CHURCH IS OPEN: The Parish Finance Council is delighted to announce that our church which was closed for the past two months for renovation is re-opened this weekend. This was a major project for our Parish as the old floor having served us well since the church was built had become un-safe and needed to be totally renewed. As there was no sub floor it was dug a foot deep to get a foundation which was then covered with 4 inches of insulation – followed by the new floor and then the retiling. Also the piping of the central heating was also totally replaced. The arches of the main body of the church are now lit up with under floor led lights. While there was no work done to the sanctuary itself, we replaced the wheelchair ramp onto the sanctuary and re-carpeted it. Where necessary we touched up the painting of walls and doors and revamped the front entrance. We wish to thank the Architect, Richard McElligott and Cisco Woodframe Homes Ltd. Contractors, Lixnaw who carried out the project with competence and professionalism and did it all on schedule. One could easily forget how bad the old floor had become but we have pictures taken by Kieran Moloney to show various stages of the project which will be displayed in due course. We are also grateful to the group who kindly helped with the general clean-up in preparation for the opening and indeed the Parish Folk Group and the Parish Choir who are singing at our masses this weekend to mark the occasion. Well done all!

 

PARISH OFFICE will be closed on this Bank holiday Monday 4th August - normal office hours resumes on Tuesday next 5th August.

ADORATION CHAPEL: Please note that our Adoration Chapel will not re-open for another week due to renovation work to the Chapel. It should be up and running the following week, please God. More details next weekend.

Next weekend, Aug. 9th & 10th it will be our turn in Listowel to get a visit from Sr. Patricia McMenamin of the OLA Congregation and she will speak at all masses. There will be a retiring collection at all masses.
