Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 25th November

Though celebrating Christ The King, our day is not spent in Royal Palace or on Celebrity Red Carpets but in the here and now of life in this parish, this place and at this time. The KING before us is practically naked, blood stained, battered and bruised. He is riddled with doubts and hurt “My…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 11th November

These names are found on a monument to the memory of men from Mayo who died and on a website listing all the available names of those who died.

Hot Topic!

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 28th October

It has been decided to install emergency lighting and exit signs in Kilmovee Church in conjunction with the installation of the new heating system. This will mean an extended work period so Mass on All Saints’ Day will be in the Community Centre. The church should be open again for the evening Mass on All Souls’ Day.

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 21st October

Last weekend we had Fr Emilian with us. A native of East Africa and a priest of the Rosminian Order, he spoke to us of his Order’s Missionary Work in his own country and beyond. I think all of us who heard him speak were impressed, not least because deep down he doesn’t enjoy this…
