17. Parish of Ardkeen at Christmas 2012

On Christmas Eve Father Neeson celebrated the Family Mass for Christmas in St Mary Star of the Sea Church at 6.30pm. At the beginning of Mass Father blessed the crib at the front of the Church and after the Gospel the children from the Children’s Liturgy performed a selection of Christmas Carols. This year the ‘Midnight’ Mass in St Joseph’s Church was celebrated at the earlier time of 9pm. Both churches have been tastefully decorated to celebrate the Christmas season.
