CHRISTMAS FAIR IN MOONCOIN
It’s that time of year again. The Christmas Fair will be held in the Parish Hall on Sunday, December 4 starting at 1.30pm. All the usual stalls will be there. To help us, we are appealing for your support by arranging: Homemade Cakes, Buns, Fruit, Veg, Shrubs, Bottles & Toys, New or Unused Gift Items, Bric-a-Brac. Again last year we were saved the cost of a skip, as the items donated were all of reliable quality. The proceeds of the Christmas Fair go towards the upkeep of the Parish Hall. During the year a new ramp has been installed at the front door, a completely new stage has been built, timber around the perimeter of the floor has been replaced with new wood and new flooring has been laid in the Supper Room and kitchen. In addition, non-slip floors have been installed where it was deemed necessary.
Your support and generosity makes this possible. During the month of November tickets are also on sale for the needs of the Hall. This year the prizes include 32” Flat Screen TV and or Toshiba Laptop, amongst the other great prizes. We ask you to support this effort by buying tickets, asking €2 for 1, or €5 for a book of 3.
It would be impossible to update the hall without your continued generosity and support. Thank you all very much.
LEARNING ABOUT THE MASS WITH KATH AND QUMEN
PREPARING THE CHURCH FOR MASS
The sacristan is a very important person in church. He, or she opens and closes the building, makes sure that it is warm and welcoming, prepares the altar, lights the candles, puts out the necessary books and things needed for the Mass and makes sure that there are enough candles, wine and altar breads for Mass. In most parishes there are people who look after The cleaning of the church. They also make sure that there are flowers to decorate the altar. They may put up the crib at Christmas and decorate the church building for special occasions.
