CEMETERY SUNDAY IN CLONMINCH
Cemetery Sunday in Clonminch is next Sunday, 17th, at 1.00pm.  This is an important day in our Parish, as we remember our dead and their families.  There will be no 1.00pm Mass in the Church of the Assumption. We ask all families to continue removing waste material from their graves and we acknowledge the efforts that people have been making in maintaining them and keeping the cemetery tidy.

Next Friday, 15th, is the Feast of the Assumption.  Masses are as follows:  Tullamore 6.30pm (Vigil), 7.45am, 10.00am, 1.10pm, 6.30pm; Durrow 8.00pm.

 

“REAR A CALF” SCHEME
