Mayfield people are incredibly proud of our parish and community. We are blessed with a vibrant parish and great congregations. We have a fantastic community with numerous cultural, community and sporting groups. We want everyone to know our story and broadcast the best of our parish and community. Our community and parish is built on great traditions of volunteerism and a wish ‘to give to the community’ 2017 will see several ‘milestones’ honouring this unique tradition and several ‘new beginnings’ which will sustain that unique spirit into the future. Just some of the notable ‘landmarks’ of 2017 are: Mayfield Ladies Club celebrating 50 years of community involvement; Newbury House marking 30 years of community building; Our Lady Crowned Credit Union is marking 50 years of service to the community; Fr. Dermot Brennan O.P. is celebrating 50 years of priestly service; The ordination to the permanent deaconate of David Lane in this September; The opening of Scoil Mhuire agus Eoin in September building on the history and traditions of Scoil Mhuire Banríon & Scoil Eoin Aspal; The opening of St. Killian’s School as a whole new chapter of special education in Mayfield and joining Cara Junior School which opened in 2013; Ceremonies to mark traditions of Scoil Mhuire Banríon and Scoil Eoin Aspal will take place before the Summer; These are all positive and forward looking moments. These are opportunities and not conclusions. These are all happy events and not sad ones. These are ‘the story’ of our parish and community. Why not let everyone know that we are looking to the future with confidence, trust and faith. As always we pray, Our Lady Crowned, pray for us.
