Sr Clare
Sr Clare, Our Organist, says farewell to us at the 11:30am Mass next Sunday. We were all saddened when the news of her imminent departure was announced a few weeks ago. Sr Claire has contributed greatly to the Faith life of the Parish by her involvement in the Sunday Liturgy and also in Sacarmental and funeral liturgies for many years. She will be sadly missed by all of us Whoes lives she touched in different ways. We wish her health and happiness for many years to come.
"We can make our lives sublime and departing leave behind us footprints on the sands of time".

St Mel's Cathedral
The Re-dedication of St.Mel’s Cathedral, Longford will take place on Sunday 17th May at 3.30. This is an historic occasion in the Diocese. The splendour, magnificence and beauty of the restored Cathedral should inspire all of us to contemplate the mystery of God.
