Listening Process in the Archdiocese: Feedback is now invited to the Draft Pastoral Plan. Many people from the parish participated in preparatory meetings over the past year and more. As gatherings of people are not possible for now, please look at the plan through this link: Draft Pastoral Plan March 2020 – Final version March 6. This is linked at www.cashel-emly.ie >Pastoral Resources >Listening Process. Details of how to comment are given there. Your support will be most appreciated.
First Friday: Fr. Egan and Fr. Dunne will make contact with those they usually visit on next Friday. We will pray with you at a distance.
Collections: People have been asking about the different collections. This weekend would be the Sacristan and Church Maintenance Collection. We have already missed out on the Easter Priests’ Collection. First we wish to thank those who dropped in their contribution through the letter box or by post. If people wish to make a contribution (cheque or cash), we will divide it between the different collections. Otherwise people may wait until the restrictions are relaxed and then make a contribution. Above all, we want to say a very sincere thanks to you all for your continued support, generosity and kindness to us.
Table Quiz: Sincere thanks to everyone who supported our Good Friday Online Parish Table Quiz in aid of the Cashel Unit of the Order of Malta. €1365 was raised for this worthy cause.
Thanks from Fr. Egan and Fr. Dunne: We want to say very sincere thanks to all who phoned or sent messages during the last number of weeks. If we didn’t hear from you we know that you were hoping the best for us. We do appreciate your loyalty, friendship and care at this time and we assure you all of a big share in our prayers and Masses during these challenging times. Let us be united in friendship and prayer.
