On Tuesday 18th. Nov. at 7.30pm, in the Church of the Assumption, we will support and pray for parents who have lost a son or daughter.  At this service we pray for all parents, family members and friends who have had to cope with the tragic and untimely death of their infant, child, teenager or adult son or daughter.  We will also remember with love and celebrate the lives of babies who have died before or around the time of birth.  We welcome parents who have undergone the trauma of abortion.  During the service prayer teams will be available to pray with individuals or couples, for healing from their pain and grief.

The Durrow Graveyard Committee are dedicated to keeping the graveyard in pristine condition.  A recent Health and Safety audit has highlighted the need for a handrail on the path from the Church to the graveyard.  This will cost €7000 and the Committee would be grateful for a once off donation for this project from Parishioners.  Donations can be made to John O’Connor or Tom Whelan. 

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is celebrated in Polish at 2.30pm in the Church of the Assumption on the 4th Sunday of every month.
