Message from Fr. Seán: We welcome you back to mass.

Great news, from next Monday, May 10th, we can celebrate Mass with our parishioners again.

This is what Mass is all about – the gathering of Christians to do this “In memory of me” .

Please join us for Eucharist.

The heart of every Christian Community is to gather for Mass and St John’s Church in Ballybunion is very safe and will be kept that way by our volunteers.

Because there is a limit on numbers please call the dedicated phone number (087) 798 2190 which is also advertised on the Parish newsletter and outside the church.

Next Sunday May 16th is the Feast Day of Saint Brendan, the Patron Saint of the Diocese of Kerry. Brendan was born on the other side of the Cashen River in the Ardfert/Fenit area around the year 484. He is reputed to have been raised by St Ita in Limerick at her boys school. After ordination he became an Abbot and a founder of Monasteries and a hero of legendary voyages in the Atlantic Ocean. He is closely associated with Ardfert Monastery.

In early times Christianity was organized around the Monasteries, then in the year 1111 at the Council of Rathbrazil the structure of Parishes and Dioceses were formalized. The Diocese of Kerry (Ardfert) which takes in all of County Kerry, all the Beara Peninsula and five Parishes in North Cork was established.  Brendan became the Patron Saint of our Diocese.

Church Restoration

The historic St. John’s Catholic Church (1897) in Ballybunion was beautifully restored at a cost of €2.2 million in 2014. Any donation to help us reduce our current debt of €592,524 would be most welcome.
