Mass for Exams
Next Thursday, the 7pm Mass will be held in Kilmanagh and offered for the students sitting exams from our Parish Cluster of Ballycallan, Kilmanagh, Killaloe, Tullaroan & Freshford.
All are welcome to attend and we wish all sitting exams, every good wish and prayer. The Mass will be broadcast via the internet.
Queen of Peace Jubilee
On June 22nd, we will hold a special Mass to celebrate the golden jubilee of Kilmanagh Church. Bishop Niall Coll will be the celebrant. The Mass will be followed by refreshments and entertainment. All are welcome to attend.
From June onwards, baptisms will be at 2pm on Saturday’s, and more emphasis on sharing a baptism date will be presented to families.
Where a baptism is booked on a particular Saturday, anyone else wishing to have a baptism on that weekend, will be asked to share that baptism. In practice, this means, whatever church has been booked by the first couple, that will be the venue for all baptisms that weekend.
Families who are not living in the parish, should have their child baptised in the parish where they live.
First Friday Visits
I will make my First Friday calls, Thursday, Kilmanagh & Killaloe, from 1.30pm onwards
Friday, Ballycallan, from 1.30pm onwards.
Do let those I attend know. If you know of someone who would like to be included on my list, let me know. Thanks.
