ST PETER’S PARISH, DROGHEDA

ALTAR NOTICES  –  28 NOVEMBER 2021  – 1st SUNDAY OF ADVENT

 

  1. The Sunday collection last week amounted to €3,075. Many thanks for your great generosity and your use of the parish envelope.

  2. Our Lady of Lourdes Church Altar Society holds its church gate collection at all Masses in the Lourdes Church this weekend. Many thanks to the altar society for its great work.

  3. In line with Government and diocesan directives, parishioners are asked please to continue to wear face masks, sanitise their hands on entry into the church, and be mindful of social distancing. Holy Communion is received on the hand only.  The Sunday obligation continues to be suspended.

  4. Rosary and Benediction this Sunday evening in St Peter’s Church at 5.00pm.

  5. An Advent Evening will be held in Our Lady of Lourdes Church at 7.30pm on each of the four Wednesdays of Advent, beginning this Wednesday, 1st December. The evening will involve looking at the Gospel for the following Sunday, with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, music by Glór, prayer, led and silent, and ending with Benediction. The various evenings will be led by the parish clergy, this week by Fr Sweeney, with members of the Diocesan Pastoral Council. The Church will be open to the public, or each liturgy may be viewed by webcam.

  6. Friday coming, December 3rd, is the first Friday of the month. The clergy will visit the sick this month in accordance with Government and diocesan norms, but only after consultation with the person concerned or their family.

  7. The St Vincent de Paul Churchgate Christmas collection will be held next weekend. Covid-19 and soaring living costs have tipped many people into poverty, or deeper poverty, including parents of young children and teenagers. SVP reports an unprecedented number of calls for help in 2021 which could reach 200,000 by the end of the year.

  8. Christmas Dues will be collected in the coming weeks. The 2022 parish envelope boxes will also be distributed, and the parish Christmas card.  Many thanks to our distributors.

  9. Many thanks to our primary schools for their wonderful art work to promote greater awareness for the care of our earth. The completed art work is on display in Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Many thanks to the PPC.
