THE IRISH HEART FOUNDATION would like to thank the parishioners for their generosity during the 2012 Church gate collection. The total amount collected was €200.00.

WORLD MISSION SUNDAY is  on next  Sunday 21rd October. Mission month is a time to celebrate the work of missionaries. Each year we are encouraged to offer the young churches our prayers and support. The theme this year is  “Growing in Communion ” and this year’s mission  poster features the founder  of the society of the Propagation of the Faith Pauline Jaricot and Cork born  lay missionary Aisling Foley currently ministering in South Africa.   We can all play an active role in helping more than 1,100 dioceses generally located  in the poorer areas of the globe. We express again our gratitude for your support of the Missions each year and appeal to your generosity once again. For more information visit the Killaloe Diocesan website www. Killaloediocese.ie
