  1. The Sunday collection last week amounted to €3,555. Many thanks for your great generosity and your use of the parish envelope.

  2. St Anthony’s Feast day is today, Sunday. Fr Brian Allen, OFM, will be celebrant and preacher at the 11.00am Mass today in St Peter’s Church.  He will also conduct a Holy Hour at 7.00pm in St Peter’s this evening.  St Anthony’s lilies will be blessed at both liturgies. As restrictions on numbers in the church continue, many people will not be able to attend in person, but will be able to participate by webcam, or   People may also drop into the church to pray at the specially erected shrine to St Anthony or to light a candle, anytime from 7.30am to 8.30pm.  St Anthony’s candles are for sale in the church shop and St Peter’s sacristy.

  3. Due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions there will not be a public blessing of the graves in St Peter’s or Newtown Cross Cemeteries this year. However, there will be a thirty-minute liturgy streamed live on Sunday 27th June at 3.00pm via St Peter’s Church webcam on St Peter’s Parish website,, and also on (Drogheda). The liturgy will include the rosary and the reading of the names of those who have died since last year’s Cemetery Sunday.

From the following Wednesday afternoon video footage filmed by the Knights of St Columbanus of the clergy privately blessing the dressed graves in both cemeteries will be available on the parish website and Facebook page. Parishioners are asked to prepare their family graves as usual for Sunday 27th June, and are encouraged to leave flowers on the graves of their loved ones as they normally do. The rubbish bin in the Cemetery is now located in the centre of the Cemetery, near the Parish Priests’ graves.

There will be an opportunity to donate online for the upkeep of St Peter’s Cemetery on our GoFundMe page (St Peter’s Cemetery Blessing 2021), or through the parish website, (donate button / general parish upkeep / message – St Peter’s Cemetery).  St Peter’s Parish is very grateful to the Cemetery Committee, the Parish Pastoral Council, the Knights of St. Columbanus and to our Cemetery team for the great work in preparing for Cemetery Sunday.

  1. There will be a second collection this weekend for Peter’s Pence. This collection enables Pope Francis to continue the mission of the Universal Church.  It also supports the upkeep of the Vatican offices and missions abroad, and is for the discretionary use of the Holy Father, including the relief of those most in need.

  2. Summer Dues for the support of the priests of the parish will be collected over the coming few weeks. Many thanks to our collectors and for your support.  Envelopes at the back of church and on tables.

  3. During the Pandemic we will be grateful if you can bring home the missalette you have used at Mass and the Newsletter you have read.

  4. Full details with regard to all of these notices, including Confessions, Baptisms, Anniversaries and St Peter’s Church Shop, and many other aspects of the life of the Parish and Archdiocese in the Parish Newsletter which is available in the churches throughout the week. Also see church noticeboards, parish website, and Facebook page.
