St. Joseph‘s Young Priests Society
The AGM of our Parish Branch of St. Joseph's Young Priests Society will be held in the Parish Centre on next Tuesday 14th Oct.  7.30pm. The meeting will begin with Mass.
Our Parish Branch is celebrating its 32nd anniversary. The members of the Branch are very grateful to the people of Turners Cross for their very generous support through the years and to the promoters and members for their diligent work for the Society. Members of the Society meet in the Parish Centre on the second Tuesday of every month and say the Rosary and the Prayer for Vocations every day before the 10am Mass. On Sunday next our Fr. Charlie travels to Killarney to represent the Diocese at the Annual National Conference on Vocations. The Promoters of our Parish Branch of St. Joseph's Young Priests Society collected €8,837,00 towards the education of priests at home and abroad in the past year. We say a sincere thank you to the promoters and those who contribute so generously.

Next Sunday is Mission Sunday
Next Sunday is the annual world wide Catholic celebration of mission Sunday.

Our support allows Catholic communities throughout the world to become self-sufficient and progress according to their own needs and traditions.
