Diocesan Priests’ Retreat 9th – 13th October 2022
The Diocesan Priests’ Retreat will take place from this Sunday 9th to Thursday 13th October 2022. There will be no weekday Masses in parishes from Monday 10th to Thursday 13th October. Bishop Fintan has asked Fr Silvester O’Flynn to cover Funerals in the Harbour that may arise during the course of the retreat. I ask you to keep us all in your prayers during these days of reflection and renewal. Fr Chris
I would like to thank our two Facebook Ministers for their service in bringing the Mass to the wider public who still cannot attend Mass, especially the housebound and the elderly. I am always amazed at the numbers who watch the Harbour Masses online, and also the numbers who send in messages. I would like to be clear that though we are happy to provide this service at present, it is not an interactive service. In other words, we will not be replying or responding to any comments that come in via Facebook at any time. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Fr Chris
Following on from sacramental queries about the first Holy Communion dates a number of weeks ago I am delighted to announce the dates for the Harbour’s celebration of First Confession:
Wednesday 1st March: Lower Harbour National School Ringaskiddy
Wednesday 8th March: Shanbally National School
Wednesday 15th March: Scoil Barra Naofa Monkstown
Wednesday 22nd March: Star of the Sea National School Passage West
All Ceremonies will be at 7.00 p.m.
First Confession is the first sacrament offered by the church since the baptism of your child. It focuses on God's love for all and God's willingness to forgive us and be merciful to us when we do not show love.
A Service of Remembrance
On Friday 14th October 2022 at 7.30 p.m. in the Sacred Heart Church, Western Road, Cork a Service of Remembrance will be held by Cork University Maternity Hospital. All who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss are welcome to attend.
