St. Patrick’s Church Stamullen
We would like to alert parishioners to a new routine for coming to receive the Eucharist at Masses in Stamullen.
Instead of spreading out in front of the Altar we are proposing that Fr. Declan will remain standing at the centre of the sanctuary and those wishing to receive communion will go to him. The Eucharistic Minister will be placed half way down the aisle in the middle of the church (instead of at the back).
We will observe how this new system works over a few weeks.
Annual Parish Remembrance Service
The seventh Annual Parish Remembrance Mass will take place on Saturday, 25th November at 6 pm in St. Patrick’s Church, Stamullen.
Families of those whose funerals have taken place in the parish since last November are invited to attend. A letter of invitation will be posted soon.
Parishioners who have relatives or friends who have passed to their eternal reward during the year are also very welcome to attend.
We ask parents of children attending Children’s Liturgy on a Sunday morning to please read copies of Codes of Conduct which children will be given over the next two weeks.
We would appreciate if parents could sign Consent Forms and return to the sacristy as soon as possible.
Please check noticeboards for information regarding Safeguarding children in our parish and in the Diocese of Meath. You can get more information on the Diocesan Website: www.dioceseofmeath.ie/safeguarding-children
