Thank you for your donations to last week’s Offertory and Share Collections. Donations to these collections can be made online from our Parish Website at: www.milltownparish.ie.
We offer our condolences to the family and friends of Eddie Croke and Monica Metcalfe whose funerals took place during the last week. May they rest in peace.
Volunteers are needed for stewarding and sanitizing the church after our weekend Masses. Please contact Fr. Peter or the Parish Office if you are available to help.
Our Parish Church is opened for the public to attend Mass. Please note that attendance in this church is limited to a maximum of 50 people

The church will remain open for private prayer on Monday – Saturday 10.45 to 5.30pm, and on Sunday from 12.30pm – 5.30pm.
Firstly we wish to say a warm word of thanks to you for your great generosity to the Christmas and Easter Dues and the First Sunday Collection, all of which go towards the payment of the priests of the parish and the diocese.
Our Archbishop has now written to tell us that the extended period without Sunday Masses this year has meant a dramatic drop in monies received by the Diocese’s ‘Common Fund’, the fund from which the priests are paid. This fund is now at an all-time low and we need to build it up.
So the Diocese has introduced a special ‘Summer Dues’ appeal in the hope of making up some of the short-fall. ‘Summer Offering’ envelopes are available in the church.
These envelopes may be returned to the Parish Office or handed in to the Sacristy or to any of the priests.
We are very aware that these have been challenging times for everyone and we do appreciate all the many ways in which you have already given us your support.
Wishing you every blessing,
Frs. Peter and Alan
