Spring Station Masses

Spring Station Masses have been taking place for the past three weeks. If you are having a Station Mass in your home, could you please contact me.  A number of Station Areas have had no Mass now for a few years, it would be a pity if this lovely custom were to stop in your area. It’s a blessing on the gathering of family and neighbours when the Lord is present in the Mass in your home and townlands. Fr Finbarr.
