 The idea of having a 3 year cycle of readings from Scripture Is rooted in ancient Jewish practice. The readings usually begin with the Old Testament, then the Psalms are read/sung and the proclamation of the Gospel is the climax. They all reflect how Jesus is at the centre of salvation history. The weekday readings follow a 2 year cycle covering a broader range of Scripture. The Mass is the greatest Bible study on earth.

Fermoy Senior Citizens Association: Will hold their annual Christmas Party in the Fermoy Rowing Club on Sunday the 12th January 2020 at 1.00pm.   A full four course Christmas dinner will be served followed by an afternoon of lively dancing to the music of Mr Declan Aungier.
