Celebration and mass for Fr James Kelly, PP, Raheen

Fr James Kelly will celebrate a special Thanksgiving Mass early next month to mark his departure from Raheen Parish.

The mass, which takes on Friday, September 2 at 7.30 pm in St Fintan’s Church, will be followed by music, refreshments and presentations in the Manor Hotel, Abbeyleix, starting at 9 pm.

The Pastoral Council and organising committee sincerely thanks all those who contributed to Fr. Kelly’s Farewell Function and Presentation collection. The amount raised is a great tribute to Fr. Kelly’s standing and popularity in the parish. If anyone would still like to contribute to the collection, any member of the Pastoral Parish Council, or the organising committee, would be delighted accept your donation.
