First Penance.

A big congratulations to all the boys and girls from 2nd class in Ballyduff NS who recently celebrated the Sacrament of First Penance. It took place during one of our special Wednesday night masses for Lent so it was lovely for us as parishioners to be able to be part of their special night.

The children sang some beautiful meaningful songs. They also took part in the readings, prayers of the faithful and offertory procession. Their parents and teachers should be very proud of them all for the wonderful job they did.

Lenten Masses

Our special Wednesday night masses for Lent continue on and are a perfect way for us to give a little extra time to God. Sometimes for Lent we can focus too much on what we might give up but we can also make a promise to try do some little thing better. Mass is offered each Wednesday night at 7.30pm.


Awards Galore

Huge congratulations and best wishes to all the management and staff at Milestone Coffee House who have been nominated for no less than 7 Irish Restaurant Awards. This is a fabulous achievement for a new business. If you haven’t paid a visit to Milestone yet then you are denying yourself a lovely treat. The menu is excellent and service is relaxing and friendly. We wish Martina and all her staff the very best in the awards and continued success here in Kilmeaden.
