ST PETER’S PARISH ALTAR NOTICES
AUGUST 2022 – 20th SUNDAY ORDINARY TIME
The Sunday collection last week amounted to €3,113. The Sunday Collection is taken up in the church porches on entry to and exit from Mass. Many thanks for your great generosity and your use of the parish envelope.
Parishioners are encouraged to wear face masks, sanitise their hands on entry into the church, and to be mindful of social distancing. Holy Communion is received on the hand only.
Tomorrow, Monday, 15th August, is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. It is a holyday of obligation. Masses in St Peter’s Church at 8.30am and 10.30am, and in Our Lady of Lourdes Church at 10.00am and 7.30pm.
We are very saddened that Fr Paul Murphy is included in the Archbishop’s autumn changes, effective 3 September. Fr Paul is being transferred to the Parish of Kilmore, Co. Armagh, while also, on completion of his Canon Law studies, commencing work in the Armagh Inter-diocesan Marriage Tribunal. We congratulate Fr Paul on his appointment and wish him well. Fr Paul’s farewell will be marked at the Saturday 7.00pm Mass in Our Lady of Lourdes Church on 27 August, followed by refreshments on the church plaza. Any parish group wishing to make a presentation to Fr Paul should please contact Fr Sweeney.
We are delighted that Fr Paul is being succeeded as Curate in St Peter’s Parish by Fr Piotr Wojtala, of the Diocese of Opole, Poland, already well known to us in the past year. We congratulate Fr Piotr on his appointment and warmly welcome him.
Please bring home the missalette you have used at Mass.
Masses open to public and also by Webcam.
