Family Mass - The theme for our September family Mass on this Sunday, 2nd September is “Celebrating Our Talents”. We invite all adults and children to bring along symbols of their interests, hobbies, skills and talents to display in front of the altars in Gortnahoe and Glengoole during Mass. Parents are asked to encourage children to consider the various skills they have developed, e.g. knitting, art work and music as well as the projects they have carried out at school, such as woodwork. The family Mass team will be on hand to arrange the placing of these in front of the altars and all will be available for collection after Mass. As a community we have a fantastic array of skills and hobbies. Let us bring God’s blessing on them and on ourselves.
