MAY SUNDAY 2014
Annual May Sunday field day will be held on Sunday May 4 in Killeshin Hall and grounds at 2pm. This is the 130th anniversary of the founding of the Holy Cross Sodality. It’s the 70th anniversary of the revival of the Procession from Graiguecullen which the pipe band will lead for the 50 year in a row. Bishop Denis Nulty has accepted an invitation from the Holy Cross Sodality to walk in the procession which leaves from St Clare’s at 10.30am and celebrate 12 noon mass in Holy Cross Church. We invite everyone to be part of this very special occasion by walking with us.

The food appeal continues during Lent. Presently they are giving out up to 120 food parcels a week. They are surviving because of donations and the huge number of volunteers helping out. To help make the Lenten season more meaningful people are invited to leave non-perishable food items in the baskets at the church doors and in the Parish Centre and these will be used to help make up our food parcels.
