Céad Míle Fáilte
This week we welcome Fr. Jaroslaw Maszkiewicz as curate in our parish. Known as Fr. Jarek (pronounced Yarek), he is a priest of the Diocese of Warsaw in Poland and has been in Ireland since 2005. Fr. Jarek is replacing Fr. John McManus and will be living in the priest’s residence, 10 Ashford, Monksland. Fr. Jarek can be assured of a very warm welcome to the Parish of Ss. Peter & Paul and we wish him every blessing and happiness in his ministry among us.
Change of Mass times – update
With the arrival of Fr. Jarek to the parish this week, there will now be 3 priests in the parish again. The Sunday Mass times in Ss. Peter & Paul’s Church will revert to the original times with effect from the first Sunday of advent, 1st December with 3 Masses on Sunday: 9am, 10.30am and 12 noon.
