Thank You from Fr Damien Lynch: I would like to thank sincerely everybody who attended the Pitch and Putt Club on Sunday evening the 19th October to mark my departure from Fermoy Parish. I am also very grateful to all who contributed to the presentation made to me on the day and to all who have sent good wishes since my transfer became known last July. The occasion was a reminder to me of the warmth and kindness I experienced during my time among you and I hope that you will be kind enough to remember me in your prayers. You may be assured of mine. God bless you all.
Fr Damien Lynch Monday 8th December: Monday week is the 8th December The Feast of The Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary. A Holy Day of Obligation. When a Holy Day of Obligation falls on a Monday, it means there is NO 6.30 pm evening Mass in The Queen of Peace Church on the Sunday. Therefore next Sunday the 7th December there is No 6.30 Mass in The Queen of Peace Church. The Vigil Mass of The Holy Day will be in St. Patrick’s at 7.30pm.
