At this time of the year we take the opportunity to thank everybody who has contributed to the life and service of the parish over the past year. In what concerns church and liturgy gratitude is extended to the choir, who enhance our celebrations, to the Readers, to the Eucharistic Ministers, to the Servers, to the

Sacristan, to the Collectors, to the Legion of Mary, to those who decorate and provide flowers for the church, to the Community Employment Workers who serve the church in many ways, in cleaning the church, in erecting the crib,

Christmas Tree and Banners during the year and other services. Many thanks to the sisters for their commitment to Sacramental Education, Youth Service, Altar Care, Music Ministry, Communion to the Sick and Parish Visitation. We recognise with Gratitude, as well, the Parish Pastoral Council in planning and giving direction to Parish Activity, to the Finance Council for managing the Parish

Finances. We also acknowledge gratefully the work of those who provide refreshments in the Pastoral Centre and are most grateful to the Secretaries in the Office who provide wonderful and different services on behalf of the parish, and to the many people who make themselves available for various functions during the year. A very special word of thanks to the Principal and Staff of our parish school and their great work in education and values.

There are many people who participate in church life daily or weekly who deserve our thanks. Those who come to mass and take part in the Rosary and Divine Mercy Prayers every day give a powerful witness to faith. The same is true for all the people who take part in Eucharistic

Adoration either on Mondays or in their own time. Gratitude, as well to all who see the importance of Sunday Eucharist in nourishing their Christian lives and adding to their friendship with Christ.


  • The Parish of Bunclody/Kilmyshall shall be a community:
  • Of renewed faith and commitment to Christ expressed in prayer and genuine Eucharistic worship where all participate fully.
  • With deep respect for and interest in each and every person.
  • Flourishing in love, care, support, co-operation, education and communication, building to the unity of the Body of Christ.
  • Reaching out the hand of welcome to all who do not belong to our faith and worshipping community.

Please let your priest know when a family member is in hospital or sick at home
