All Souls: 2nd November  Please note, always in our Parish it has been a great tradition to “set aside” 9 Masses in the month of November to recall and pray for our deceased loved ones.  This year again lists are available in all our churches:  9 Masses will be dedicated to all parishioners, family and friends who you have included in your list.  Please collect your “List” from our churches in the coming week and return before the 1st November to be put in the Books of Remembrance.   

Remembrance Mass: Our Remembrance Mass will be on Sunday 24th November at 7pm in St. Brigids Church, Kilcurry for all those deceased within the past 12 months.  A family member will be required to bring a candle to the altar as a symbol of light for their loved ones during Mass.  Light refreshments will be served in the Community Centre.

Please note  Mass will be on in Kilcurry on Monday and Thursday mornings at 9.00am for the month of November.
