First Holy Communion- 28 May, 2017

We congratulate the girls and boys in our parish who received Holy Communion for the first time during our Sunday Mass in St Michael’s Church, Kildysart on 28 May, 2017.

May the Lord always be their protector  and guide.

Cemetery Mass – Friday, 2 June at 8pm

We will celebrate Mass in Kildysart cemetery at 8pm on Friday, 2 June. This is an opportunity for us to pray for all who are buried there and for our deceased parishioners, relatives and friends.

We will also bless the new extension to the cemetery at the end of Mass. Our appreciation is due to the committee that purchased and developed the extension and all those in our community and beyond who have contributed to the project.

May He support us all the day long

’till the shades lengthen and the evening comes,

and the busy world is hushed,

and the fever of life is over,

and our work is done.

Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging,

and a holy rest and peace at the last.    Amen
