First Confession and Holy Communion

Due to the public health emergency and the uncertainty regarding the re-opening of our churches and schools, we have decided to reschedule First Confessions and First Holy Communion. The revised dates are:

First Confessions, Tuesday, 15 September 2020 at 7pm in St Mary’s Church, Cranny;

First Holy Communion, Saturday, 26 September at 11am in St Benedict’s Church, Coolmeen.

We ask for the blessing and protection of the Lord during these worrying times and pray for all who are working to keep us safe.

We wish parents every blessing as you continue to help your children prepare to receive the grace of the sacraments.

Holy Week and Easter 2020

The Holy Week and Easter Liturgies will be celebrated in St Michael’s Church, Kildysart at the following times:

Holy Thursday – Mass of the Lord’s Supper, 8pm;
Good Friday –     The Passion of the Lord, 3pm;
Holy Saturday –  Easter Vigil, 9pm;
Easter Sunday –  Mass of the Resurrection, 11am.

All liturgies will be live-streamed on the Kildysart Parish Facebook page. Unfortunately the signal in Coolmeen and Cranny does not allow us to live-stream from those Churches.

Copies of the booklet containing the Holy Week liturgies are available in the Post Offices and shops in our pastoral area. We thank the shop owners for their help in this regard.

May the Lord be close to us as we relive in our homes his victory over sin and death.
