Mother and Baby Home Report The final Report of the Commission for Mother and Baby Homes was published last week. It is sad and harrowing reading. My heart goes out to the survivors. It is a dark time for all affected, reflecting on the sad reality of abuse in our Church. 
A full and unreserved apology has been issued and the full text of that and response to the report is available on www.killaloediocese.ie/responsetomother-and-baby-home-report/. Bishop Fintan.

Imeall Bóirne Parishes Christmas Food Appeal 2020. We had a fantastic response to our recent Christmas Food Appeal - the generosity of our parishioners was evident once again. We would like to express our great appreciation to people all over the Imeall Boirne Pastoral Area for their generosity in responding to our first Food Appeal. The response was extraordinary. 
Your donations were boxed into hampers and distributed to several local families who appreciated some extra help, also to Clare Haven Services, Clarecare, Irish Red Cross, North Clare Mental Health Services, Community Garda Policing Units in Ennis and Ennistymon. 
Special thanks also to our collection points in XL Ruan, Centra Corofin, Clarkes Crusheen and our local schools who also assisted with the collection. 
To Community Gardaí Lorraine Higgins and Deirdre Scanlon and to all who helped deliver the food hampers. 
Thank you everyone for showing the true spirit of Christmas, and bringing some happiness to families and organisations who are less well off than we are. 
Fr. Pat, Fr. Damien & Anne

House Visits As houses visits are again off limits and other measures are put in place in an attempt to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. 
Our thoughts are with the many people for whom this will be exceptionally difficult, the lonely, vulnerable, elderly, young people, those working in our hospitals, those who have lost loved ones and those separated so cruelly from their loved ones by this invisible enemy. 
We will get through this together!

Signed Mass Cards are available from Anne in the Imeall Boirne Office on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 
Also from Fr. Damien & Fr.Pat
