Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) Came into force recently. Among the requirement is that written consent of people whose names are published in the Newsletter or noticeboard be obtained. For example Ministers of the Eucharist, Readers, Altar Society, Collectors, those involved in looking after Church grounds. Consent forms will be left in the Sacristies in each of the Churches. The consent form is an essential element of Data Protection compliance. The consent form is very short and only takes a few moments to complete and can be completed after any of the Masses. We would be very grateful if you could treat the completion of this form as a priority next time you are at Mass.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen
Mary, mother and guide, pray for us. Saint Joseph, father and protector, pray for us. Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us. Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, pray for us.
CEMETERY MASS  takes place in Clonmacnois on Saturday, August 4th at 7pm.  Please remember to bring Holy Water for the sprinkling of the graves. It is touching to see how so many tend to graves of loved ones and sometimes of other plots where there may be nobody local to tend to them. The help of the Rural Social Scheme workers is a great blessing and nor do we forget the OPW in tending to the old Monastic Cemetery. Some of our parish funds go to help defray costs (Oil, servicing mowers etc) in this work and I thank you in advance for your generous support of this great work through the Parish Offertory .
