Letters and Claim forms have gone to parishioners who donated more than €250 to Holy Family Parish during 2015 and or 2016.
There are two CHY3 forms one for each year.
* CHY3 – Enduring Declaration means we won’t need to contact you for 5 years,
What should you do?
* Please fill out the form and return it to us.
* If you didn’t receive a letter/form and wish to participate, please get a form from the office, fill it out; and return it.
* If you did receive a letter and do not wish to participate, please return the form in the envelope, and we will not contact you again.
* CHY4 – Annual Declaration is only for one year and is available in the parish office.
We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Many thanks.
Many parishioners have filled out the CHY3 form, so they won’t be hearing from us this year.
The collection for the ST VINCENT DE PAUL for September realized €1,823.
Many thanks to all for your generosity
Sean O Kiersey would like to thank everybody who attended or supported our 22nd Hospice Coffee Morning.

New Parish Environmental Group Formed
Earlier this year the Parish Council canvassed parishioners about a possible new parish environment group. The good news is that we now have such a group up and running. The group is meeting about once every four weeks for around 90 minutes on Wed evenings at 7.45 pm.
Besides familiarizing itself with the Pope’s encyclical on the environment and sharing information, the group is developing a programme of action, both for its own members and at parish community level, to propose to the Parish Council.
As a first concrete step the Group is organizing a LITTER CLEAN UP in the Church grounds and on the roads and green areas in its vicinity. This will be held on Sat 18th Nov from 11.00 am to 12.00 noon.
More details in subsequent bulletins.
As Pope Francis has said: “All of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation, each according to his or her own culture involvements and talents” (Laudato Si, par 14).
Parishioners are invited to participate in the litter clean-up and will be warmly welcomed and encouraged to join the new parish environment group.
REST IN PEACE
Your prayers are requested for the souls of the following whose anniversaries occur about this time:
MAY THEIR SOULS AND THE SOULS OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED THROUGH THE MERCY OF GOD REST IN PEACE. AMEN.
