INTERNAL WORK TO THE CHURCH OF OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION
The new boiler has been installed in the basement and the system flushed and balanced. This has greatly improved the heating of the Church.
The next stage of the project is to tackle the heat loss through internal glass insulation panels, and work to the doors and floor vents as previously notified. This work will take place in September and will require mid-week closure of the Church (apart from funerals and weddings), more details later.
Many thanks to all who have contributed to this project; we greatly appreciate your support, without which the work could not proceed.
WELCOME TO THE PARISH FAMILY: Today we greet Caolan Barry Kealey, Rhiley Gerard Scullion, Willow Rose McLarnon, Conor Michael Diamond, Grace Anne Mulholland, Lír Patrick Hamill and Conor John McKenna who were baptised recently.
CONGRATULATIONS to Kelly Gallagher & Guy Edwards who were married recently.
