Published on February 9, 2021

**Reminder regarding the distribution of ashes and envelope collection this coming weekend

Parishioners of Templeglantine, Tournafulla and Mountcollins can collect their ashes on Saturday 13th February from 11am to 12 noon from their parish churches and again on Sunday 14th from 3 to 4pm (for use on Ash Wednesday). Parishioners also have the opportunity to drop any outstanding envelopes during these arranged times to help with the upkeep of our churches and offerings for the support of our three sacristians and our priests.

We fully appreciate how difficult these times are for so many of you whose jobs and businesses are effectively, locked down. As you are aware, church bills for our parishes continue. One of the most demanding bills that we face each year is insurance of our churches and heating and lighting which we continue to maintain despite the lockdown. These expenses are met through the weekly envelope collection. Any contributions, no matter the amount will be greatly valued and appreciated. We sincerely thank you for your continued support in these difficult and trying times.

○ Parishioners in Abbeyfeale and Athea can also collect their ashes from 2-4pm on Sunday 14th February and again any outstanding envelopes can be dropped off during this time.
