Bailieborough News. February 22nd 2021 . Matthew J. Cullen.

St. Annes:  Thanks: Thanks to those who donated so generously towards the upgrading of the Parish webcam. The neccessary upgrade increases the annual fee that we must pay the webcam provider. It is wonderful to have the webcam as it keeps everybody connected—but please bear in mind that this connection comes at a financial cost to the Parish.

Mass can be heard on the radio at 107.8FM in the Bailieborough area and 92FM in Shercock.

Public Masses are suspended until at least Thursday week, March 5th.  All Masses and Parish Funerals can be viewed on the Parish webcam or can be heard by tuning in the radio to 107.8 F.M.

Lent Opportunity: Jordan will lead weekly Gospel Reflection sessions every Tuesday evening at 8.00pm on Zoom. If interested, please forward your email address to:

Bailieborough Group of Parishes: During Lent, we will be running Zoom meetings for our second level students. We will be doing this alongside our friends in the Presbyterian Churches. Each Friday from 7:30-8:30pm will be a chance to see familiar faces for some fun and games! We will also be taking a look at the story of Daniel and his friends in the Bible. From their teenage years they faced into really difficult and trying times with faith and courage, and they actually flourished whilst living through those tough days. Can we do the same at this tough time?

If you’re a second level student and would like to join in please get in touch with Rev Ian or John for the Zoom access codes. We’d love to see you there!

During lockdown, we thought we would return to ‘Word at Noon’ from Monday-Friday each week. We hope these daily readings and reflections will be of some help in this tough time.

Services: Due to level 5 restrictions we cannot meet in our Church buildings, so our service this week will be on Facebook (or on YouTube under ‘bailieborough group of parishes’) from 10:30am this Sunday, 28th  February.
