NEW ALTAR SERVERS
Anyone wishing to serve at mass please collect a form from the Fr Shortall Room after either mass and return it to the sacristy as soon as possible. You will be contacted by Dolores Murray when all forms are received.
Be wary of anyone who comes to your door without prior arrangement saying they need access to your home or saying they can check your TV or aerial. Neither Saorview nor RTE are sending anyone door to door to check out if your TV is Saorview ready.
Our sympathies go to the family, friends and neighbours of Catherine Costelloe, Knockdrin, Rhode, Offaly and formerly of Coolnabanch who died during the week.
