The reduction in the number of priest’s in the parish has meant that both Fr. Pat O’Donnell P.P. and Fr. Kevin McNamara C.C. Are on the road a lot more, and have a broader area to cover. As a consequence, it is very important that we put in place a location where parishioners can call with their enquiries, knowing for certain that there will be somebody there to greet them. Furthermore with the ongoing changes in parish structures such a facility will be even more important in the years ahead. We are therefore happy to announce that OUR NEW PARISH OFFICE is open to all from last Monday January 27 We have been fortunate here in our Rathmore Parish to have had the services of two outstanding secretaries in Janice O’ Sullivan and Maureen Cremin. They will be joined on the staff by Kathleen Kelleher, whom many of you already know through her work with Rathmore Social Action Group. In the new arrangement Maureen and Kathleen will run the Parish Office, Janice will continue as previously to work from her home office. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Janice: nobody has done more to facilitate this change; and nobody has sacrificed more to enable it to take place. We have been in a period of transition over the past few months. Since August the Church Newsletter has moved to the Presbytery Office: similarly the booking of masses has moved from Janice’s capable hands. In both cases you will have seen slight teething problems but I know from now we will be back to full steam ahead. Parish Office Where is it?
