FR. PAUL’S RUBY JUBILEE
Fr. Paul would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ for all your prayers, gifts and best wishes as he celebrated  his Ruby Jubilee last Sunday. He was delighted and deeply touched on seeing so many at the 11.00am Mass and then afterwards in the Parish Centre.
Thanks to all who prepared the Parish Centre and arranged the refreshments and of course the ice cream. It truly could not have gone any better and was so much appreciated not just by Fr. Paul but by all who came along.
Mass has been offered this week in thanksgiving for your kindness. .

YOUTH MASS AND SOCIAL
On the third Sunday of each month, a Mass is celebrated with and for young adults at the Cathedral at 5.30pm followed by some input and a social. The monthly Masses and get-togethers take place under the title of Reignite

PRAYER REQUESTS
Just a little reminder that we have a board in the narthex on which you are able to place requests for prayer. It is good for us to pray with and for each other, so please always feel free to ask for prayers by placing any needs on the prayer board.

PARISH GROUP LIST
On our Groups page we have a list of groups together with their contact details. We did think it was quite comprehensive until the Hope in the Future group examined it in detail. We need to update the list on that page and we should be grateful if all group organisers could confirm to Brian Lillis (0797 4455 305 or BTLillis@gmail.com) their permission for their phone numbers (as printed in the list issued on the First Sunday of Advent) to be shown on the Parish Website and if willing provide an email address to be shown as well. Thank you all.

HOSPITAL CHAPLAINCY
During If you are (or a relative) is in hospital, you will need to ask the ward staff to ask a priest to visit: and if you move from one ward to another, you will have to ask again! There is always a Chaplain attached to hospitals, who will visit if requested, and there is always a priest on call.

ARCHIVES
We have moved the links to the pages on the ordinations of Fr. Frank Mulgrew and Fr. Richard Howard as well as the conferring of a Papal Knighthood on Jimmy Cricket- all members of our parish here at St Vincents - to our Archives page.

GROUND MAINTENANCE
We do need volunteers and, if you have any spare time however little, please feel free to come along at any  time to suit yourself. The periphery of the car park area needs regular weeding with some clipping of bushes and general tidying. You will need only a few gardening tools.
We have just a small team to keep the ball rolling and we are looking for any skills from road sweeping to weeding and shrub pruning to keep things up to scratch. If you think you can help, please contact Brian Lillis (BTLillis@gmail.com or 07974455305). We will be very grateful.  

 OUR WEBSITE
Our principal need at the present time is for input for a youth page. If we had the suggestions, then we will do our best to implement them.
We do need suggestions for improvements to the site. Just because we have managed to produce a website, it does not make us professionals. So we would be very grateful for help and assistance from IT professionals with internet expertise; we will do what we can but guidance is what we need.
If you come across any ideas on other Parish websites please let us know and we will see what we can do. If you spot any errors, don’t leave us in blissful ignorance.
Please help!
Contact us at BTLillis@gmail.com
