Parish Notices Sunday 4th October 2015

The Rector writes  ‘Today, 4th October, is the day that St Francis of Assisi is remembered throughout the world, a man who lived very much in tune with nature and with all of God’s creatures. Indeed this is why we have our Animal Blessing Service on the nearest All Age Service to this date.

And today, on his feast day, in our old friend Fr. Bertie’s Ballineaspaig Parish (Dennehy’s Cross), they will be receiving an EcoCongregation Award just as we did back in November 2014. We are delighted for them and congratulate them on the effort involved in achieving this. Hazel and Jonathan Fleury will be representing our parish at the Mass where the award will be made in the npresence of the Lord Mayor of Cork’
