Reconciliation Service: The Abbey Pastoral Area Reconciliation Service will take in the Cathedral in Ennis on Monday 16th December at 7.30pm. This is an opportunity for all of us to prepare spiritually for the celebration of Christmas.

Bambinelli Sunday (Baby Jesus Sunday): A Beautiful Advent Tradition. Every year on one of the Sundays of Advent, families bring the figure of the Baby Jesus to St. Peter’s Square in Rome for the Pope to bless. It is called “Bambinelli Sunday.” Many homes in our parish still give a central place to the crib among their Christmas decorations. At Masses next weekend 14th/15th December we invite you to bring the Baby Jesus from your home to any Mass in the Parish and they will be blessed by the Fr. Tom.

Ecumenical Carol Service: Will take place in Ennis Cathedral on Sunday 15th December at 7pm. This year the Church of Ireland will lead the Service. A beautiful way to come together as a family and get into the Christmas spirit. Maranatha-Come Lord Jesus
