A Message from Fr Pat.  I welcome the recent announcement by our Taoiseach Micheál Martin that, among other things, public worship can resume from Monday, 10th May 2021, with up to 50 people allowed to be present.  I am eagerly looking forward to having congregations back again at our weekday and Sunday Masses!  It is advised that First Holy Communion and Confirmation ceremonies should not take place at this stage.  In the meantime we ask the Lord’s blessing on the children who are looking forward to receiving their First Holy Communion and those young people looking forward to being confirmed this year, especially those in our parish.   We also ask the Lord’s blessing on their parents and other family members and on their teachers who are preparing these children and young people for these very special occasions in their lives.

St Brendan’s Church, Ardfert is open for private prayer each day from 10.45 am – 5 pm and on Sundays from 11.45 am – 5 pm; Sacred Heart Church, Kilmoyley is open for private prayer on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am – 4 pm.   The parish office is closed to the public during Level 5 restrictions.  Please contact the parish office by phone (066 7134131 – please leave a message and the secretary will get back to you) or by email at ardfert@dioceseofkerry.ie.  Parish offering envelopes and mass offerings/requests can be securely posted through the letterbox of the parish office.  The Parish Finance Council thanks you for your continuing financial support of our parish and our priest in these challenging times.

“Walk With Me”: Copies of the 2021 Easter edition of “Walk With Me” are available in both of our churches.  We will read the daily reflections contained in this booklet at all of our Masses during the Easter Season.  The reflections are inspired by Pope Francis’ latest encyclical or letter “Fratelli tutti” and his new book “Let Us Dream”, both of which were published late last year and written as a response to the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Trócaire:   Thank you to all parishioners who have returned their Trócaire donations to date.  This year’s Lenten Campaign is focusing in particular on the desperate situation in South Sudan.  Please return your Trócaire donations through the letterbox of the parish office or put in the box in Ardfert church porch.  Please exchange coin for notes if possible.  Cheques should be made out to ‘Ardfert Parish’ to enable us to send one parish donation.

Our parish is a group of families and individuals who strive to live out the Gospel message. The Gospel gives meaning, direction and hope to our lives. We believe that Christ came that we might have life and have it to the full. If you are new to our Parish community and would like to find out more about us please feel free to contact us.
