I would like to take the joyful Christmas Season to say thanks to all the people in our Parish. We are a new and exciting time in our Parish facing one of our greatest challenges with the renovation of St. James’ Church. With the help of God, we will be in a newly renovated and decorated church to celebrate Christmas next year. It will be a great achievement for our parish to have all the major construction work done. There are still delays with the cemetery extension.
We are constantly fundraising, with the collections in the church and with various events, and this will continue for some time. We will be depending on everyone’s goodwill and support. It is our church, and it is our love and generosity which will make the dreams a reality. The life of our parish is made possible by a great deal of hard work done week in and week out by an array of people. Their love and commitment to the parish is the engine which makes all possible.
I would like to thank all the parishioners in Kilbeggan and Rahugh and a special thanks to the Parish Pastoral Council, the Youth Liturgy Group, the Finance Committee, the Parish Centre Committee, and the Cemetery Committee, the Sisters of Mercy. Thanks to the Altar Societies who keep the churches so well, and those who open and close them each day. Thanks for flowers, flower arranging, and for the decoration of the church and cribs. Thanks to all who work in the sacristies. Thanks to all our altar servers, our readers and ministers of the Eucharist. Thanks to the choirs their leaders, musicians and organists. Thanks to the collectors and to all who help with the bulletin. Thanks to the child protection representatives. Thanks to all the teachers in our schools who care for the children so well and pass on our faith. Thanks to all those who support the parish so generously in the collections. Finally thank you for your support for me personally. May you all have a blessed and joyful Christmas and a happy New Year.
