Provincial Chapter 2016: The meeting which reviews all Province activity and planning will be held from Monday June 20th to Friday June 24th. All The Graan Community will be attending which means that we will not be able to have a priest on duty or evening Mass on Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th . The church and shop reception will be open from 9am – 5pm with no priest available. We are sorry about this but we know you will understand. Changes will be made after the Chapter. Please keep us in your prayers.

 

Guild Mass Cards: We have a wide selection of cards for Deceased, Mass Bouquets, Get Well, Birthday, Special Occasion and Exam Mass Bouquets which cost £2 / €2.50 each. We value your support.

 

New Altar Servers:This is the time of year when we look for more altar servers. Any boy or girl who has received First Holy Communion and is interested in becoming an Altar Server please leave your name, address and phone number at the Monastery reception as soon as possible.

In Jesus' name. Amen

Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey."  John O'Donohue (Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom)

 

SHOP: Please come and visit our shop today we have a wide range of cards, gifts etc, plus many more things.
