Weekday Masses in Carrigaholt and Kilballyowen Parishes.

Masses will be celebrated as follows:

Tuesdays: Doonaha      Wednesdays: Kilbaha

Thursdays: Cross          Fridays: Carrigaholt

Funeral Masses will, as always, take precedence.


2020 COLLECTION ENVELOPES: ARE READY TO COLLECT AT BACK OF CHURCH.  This year everyone will receive a box of Weekly Envelopes as well as the usual box of Special Collection Envelopes – this means that if you attend Mass in another parish your envelope will be sent back to our parish. This is especially important with new Mass schedules where people may attend in different places in order that we still receive your offerings that go towards insurance, heating etc and also Fr Michael’s salary.

Sunday Funerals in Cross Parish: A reminder that whenever funerals in the parish are to be celebrated on a Sunday the Funeral Mass will replace the Sunday Mass. When the Sunday Funeral is to be celebrated in Cross the Saturday Vigil Mass will be in Kilbaha Church. Where these changes occur and Masses have been booked you may either transfer your booked Mass to the alternate venue or change them to another date.
