CEMETRY MASS - The Glenmore cemetry mass will take place on Friday at 8pm and is the final mass for the graveyards of the parish. Each year outdoor masses are held in the holy places and graveyards of the parish starting with Ballyveria Grotto, followed by the graveyards of Kilbride, Kilcolm, Ballygurrim and Kilmackevogue and the only one to succumb to this summer’s inclement and damp weather was Kilcolm. A word of thanks to all those who prepared and tidied up and prepared for the outdoor masses in each of the holy places to remember all of the people who have gone before us. With each of the masses very well attended it is nice to see the local community and others attending in scuh great numbers and keeping the traditions alive. Thanks also to the readers, eucharistic minsters and sacristan, Mary Dunne.
