Remembering those who have died by suicide and the suicide bereaved after 7pm Mass on next Sat. Sept. 12th.  There will be a brief prayer service and symbolic balloon release after mass.  Please God our prayers, memories and gestures will ease the pain for many families who have been tragically bereaved.

 

The final surface was completed on the main church roof during the past week.  The scaffolding around the church will now be removed this week.  Work will commence on the sacristy roof this coming week and will be completed quickly.

Sincere thanks for your patience during these ongoing major works.  All external works should now be completed very soon.

 

Well done to all those who were honoured at the Mayfield Community Volunteer Awards held in the Silversprings Clayton Hotel on Thurs. May 7th.  A deep sense of community and volunteerism was evident at the awards ceremony and is mirrored day after day in numerous community, sporting and parish groups in the wider Mayfield area. 

Our Lady Crowned parish is truly blessed with loyal volunteers who give of themselves, their faith, their time and talents in so many ways.  All our volunteers make our parish and community a special place.  They knit our parish and community together with the fabric of their faith and generosity.  May God bless all our volunteers in their loyalty, goodness and generosity.

Best wishes to Michael Joyce and all members of Our Lady Crowned Church choir who will sing at the Annual Cork Eucharistic Procession on this Sun. Jun. 7th.  People from several parishes, including Our Lady Crowned, will gather outside St. Patrick’s Church at 2.30pm.  Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly of Cashel will deliver the homily in Daunt’s Square.

There is certainly music in the air in Our Lady Crowned these days.  The Female Alumnae Choir from the Tallinn University of Technology in Estonia sang magnificently at 12 noon mass on Sun. May 3rd.  They were in Cork for the Cork International Choral Festival and visited Our Lady Crowned as part of the Festival Sacred Trail.

On this Sun. May 10th, the internationally acclaimed tenor, Finbarr Wright will perform at a Gala Concert.  He will be joined by Niamh O'Sullivan (mezzo-soprano) as part of a wonderful evening of song.  There is huge interest in the concert and tickets are in much demand.
