Mass to be aired on RTE – 3rd November broadcast from RTE Studios in Donnybrook.
As numbers are limited, it is hoped we can do our best to represent the parish at this special event. There are very clear regulations set by RTE and these include a choir of up to 27 members, 5 musicians and a congregation of up to 24 (total 56).
There will be a choir practice in Kilkelly on Wednesday next at 8pm. There is likely room for some additional members (possibly 10-12) so it is hoped some members from the other choirs in the parish, who might be interested in attending the Mass, would attend this practice. Perhaps, choirs could decide among themselves who might be interested.
We will need to choose some people for the ministries at the Mass, Readers, Offertory Procession and Prayers of the Faithful. There will be 16 places remaining and the fairest approach seems to be to have four people from each of our church areas as part of the congregation (welcome to sing too of course!!) and ideally this group should reflect gender balance and different age groups within the parish.
With that in mind, if you would be interested in attending, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page and return it next weekend. There will be boxes for men and women in each of the churches and four names (two from each) will be drawn. We have to be at RTE by 8.30am so will organise a bus for the day and travel as a group.
