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 next week. 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 Alex James Faith, Paige Walsh Glendinning, Cormac James O’Kane, Conor John McKenna, Matthew Joseph McLaughlin and Lainey Kelly who were baptised recently.
CONGRATULATIONS to Kerri Neeson & Vitalif Grigorjevs, Amy Johnston & Seamus Redmond and Karen O’Kane & Alistair Stewart who were married recently.
