REMEMBERING FAMILY, FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS
Friday November 7th @ 7:30 p.m.
In November we will be remembering Family, Friends & Neighbours who have died during the past year. The support of friends & neighbours is a vital part of the grieving experienced during the year of a bereavement. This year why not take it a step further and come and offer your support to the families of all those who died during the past 12 months. We gather on Friday, November 7th at 7:30 p.m. in St. Anne’s church. It is really a lovely night, when those who are from our parish are mentioned by name and a special candle lit in their memory. After the service, family, friends & neighbours join together in the Parish Centre for light refreshments, where we continue to chat and remember those who are so dear to us. Everyone is most welcome.

VOCATIONS TO THE PRIESTHOOD
Have you ever wondered if you are being called to be a Diocesan Priest? If you have ever considered a vocation to the priesthood, then you are not on your own. God is constantly calling people to ministry in the Church, but often His call gets drowned out by the care and busyness of life. If you are contemplating a vocation to priesthood, contact: Vocations Director, Archbishop’s House, Drumcondra, Dublin 9 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone/Text: 086 834 6071 Web: www.priest.ie
