CHURCH COLLECTION Sunday 13 July Envelopes – £2073, Loose Plate –     £785, S. Orders £715






The Parish of     Magherafelt & Castledawson is well known for the generosity of its     parishioners and yet again that generosity has been well displayed in our     twelve months building collection.  I     wish to thank everyone for their outstanding contributions during difficult     times.  I have been overwhelmed by     the response of parishioners which has not only covered the cost of the     work to Our Lady of the Assumption Church but also reduced the parish debt     considerably.  Go raibh maith agaibh. 


Fr. John Gates PP.




Kevin Duffy, native of Clonoe, in his mid-40’s, has been     appointed by Cardinal Brady to the Parish of Magherafelt &     Castledawson.  Kevin will be ordained     in the Cathedral in Armagh on Sunday 14 September.  A Permanent Deacon can carry out all the     functions of a priest apart from the Consecration of Mass & Confession.  Kevin works as a joiner, is married to Mairead     and has three young children.  He     will speak at all Masses over the summer to introduce himself and the     Permanent Diaconate to parishioners.      I am sure that you all will make him feel very welcome in our     Parish.
