Ceremonies in the Parish: Baptism
This weekend we welcome in baptism: Caleb Ryan, Sienna Mae Smith, Elodie Smyth and Jess Tiernan, May these newly baptised children always know and love Jesus as their friend.
We ask parishioners to pray for these children and their families.
The Stamullen Cemetery Commitee would like to thank everyone who, despite the inclement weather, attended the annual Mass and had their plots in lovely condition.
A special thanks to Fr. Declan P.P., who celebrated the Mass and also for his kind words of support for the Committee. He was assisted by retired PP of Stamullen, Fr. Michael Daly and retired PP of Ballymore, Westmeath, Fr. Philip Smith, who is a native of Stamullen and has now returned to live in the parish.
Thank you to Holly Reilly for her beautiful singing during the Mass. Special thanks to Scupps Whyte, Sean Sutton, Pat Ryan and Willie Curtis, to Mark Mooney who supplied the paint and looked after all the painting duties in the graveyard at no cost to the Committee.
Well done to the ladies who supplied and planted the flowers each side of the gate; they added nice colour to the cemetery.
Finally thanks to individual members of the committee who worked tirelessly over the year, the general public for their messages of support and generous donations and to Brendan and the staff of Whyte’s for the refreshments after the Mass.
Adoration in Stamullen will take place every Thursday following 10 am Mass, until 11 am. Adoration will resume after summer recess in September.
