Appreciation: It has been an extraordinary year. When we joined hands on New Year’s Day none of us could have anticipated what lay ahead. But we have adapted and made the best of it, and while it has been difficult there has been blessings too, a general slowing down, making contact with long lost friends, and seeing life in general from a more wholesome perspective. Christmas is a time for a thank you and appreciation, especially this year. We would like to thank all our dedicated parishioners involved in our church ministries. The ministers of the Eucharist, readers, singers, musicians, altar servers, collectors, counters, altar society, liturgy group, parish Council. Thank you to our new team of ushers who are doing a great job at keeping us all safe. Thank you to the people that decorate and maintain the church, inside and out. Also to Siobhan Mc Sweeney in the Parish office, Mike and Mary O’Connor who open and close our church faithfully every day. To John and staff of the Rural Development Office and the teachers, students, pupils and boards of management of our schools. A special word of thanks to Sandra O’Connor who donated our beautiful Christmas tree and the Fleming family for putting it up. Míle, Míle Buíochas.

Kilcummin Pastoral Council: On behalf of all Kilcummin Parishioners we would like to thank Fr. Kieran and all the priests of the Killarney Pastoral Area for all the work they do in our Parish attending to all our needs; Funerals, Weddings, Baptisms, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Masses in our Church, School Visits, Meetings, Sick Calls and preparing for the Sacraments especially during these very challenging times. It is very much appreciated and we wish you all A very Happy, Holy and Safe Christmas and New Year. Míle, Míle Buíochas.
