Farewell — Fr. Seamus Nohilly  We extend our sincere “Thank You” to Fr. Seamus for his dedication, his gentle presence, and his listening ear to all the parishioners of Imeall Boirne. We are grateful for the gifts you have brought to our parishes, for blessing our marriages, baptising our children and for
supporting us in our bereavements. For our part, we pray that we will always be attentive to the needs of our priests and never take you for granted. For you, like us, need friendship, love, a sense of belonging, kind words and acts of thoughtfulness. Fr. Seamus, may God continue to Bless you and grant you the faithfulness, strength and health you need to serve the Lord with gladness, and with a joyful and generous heart.

World Meeting of Families In preparation for the World Meeting of Families, there is a vast array of resources for all ages with videos, animations, cartoons, and activities for our young people. There is also the opportunity of the ‘Amoris’ family reflection which is a nice way to prepare for the event.
We also ask you keep the gathering in your prayers and in particular to pray for Pope Francis, who visits us next weekend.
