HARVEST FESTIVAL MASS - 2017
This years Harvest Festival Mass will take place on Saturday, September 23rd at 7. 00pm.
The Basket Collection (one collection only) again will go to supply water pumps to families in a very deprived area of India.
Last year, as for the previous year we were able to ensure that 10 pumps were supplied and fitted. An now instead of people having to go for miles to get a clean cup of water, all they have to do is step outside their own homes, the pumps ensure that many families are now able to avail of so much that could not be done in the past. If perhaps you canot not attend that mass you can still make a donation contacting any of the Pastoral Council or Fr. Kavanagh or alternatively place your donation in a envelope marked Harvest in the basket at any weekend mass after.

The collection in September 2016 realised a wonderful amount - 1.200. 00 (Twelve hundred euro). Thank you so much for your generosity.

Thank you to the Pastoral Council who organised and hosted The Harvest Thanksgiving Masses of 2015 & 2016 and will do so again in 2017.
