Death of Fr. MacCourt
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Fr. Aloysius MacCourt. Although he had been in failing health for some time, his death was sudden and unexpected. His funeral will take place on Saturday at 12 noon in St. Mary’s, Stewartstown. May he rest in peace.
NOTICE RE TEMPORARY MASS CHANGES
As many of you are aware Fr. Eugene is on a Canon Law course until February and Fr. Corr is ill and will not be available to celebrate public Masses in the coming weeks. There are 6 weekend Masses in the parish and temporarily we don’t have the priests available to cover them all.
Therefore, in consultation with the parish pastoral council a short term change in the weekend Mass schedule will take effect from next weekend. (25th/26th Jan.)
Holy Family: Sat Vigil Mass 6p.m; Sun 10am and 12 noon. The 8am is temporarily suspended.
St. Mary’s Stewartstown: Sun 11am. Sat Vigil Mass is temporarily suspended.
I know that this will cause some inconvenience but I ask you to bear with me during this period.
The Parish Pastoral Council will continue to work over the next year to respond to the needs of the parish and a new youth pastoral council will be launched in the coming months. The Coalisland parish App will also be updated to keep up with technical developments and it is great to report that over 500 smartphone and tablet users have downloaded the App to their devices.
The generosity of parishioners in response to the Holy Family roof fund has been phenomenal. Thanks to everyone for their support. The work will begin soon and will be completed before Easter. There will be no disruption to services in the church.
Please continue to follow us on the Coalisland parish App and also on twitter @Coalparish.
