In preparation for St Brigid’s Day on the 1st of February, at the Tuesday evening Mass on 31st January Fr Neeson blessed all the St Brigid’s Crosses which had been made both at the Rush Party and by parishioners in their own homes.

Saint Brigid, Mary of the Gael, Pray For Us.

2nd February is the Feast of The Presentation in the Temple and also the Feast of Candlemas. At the morning Mass Fr Neeson blessed all the candles for use in the Church and Parish.

The altar of St. Mary Star of the Sea was suitably arranged for both ceremonies.
