We extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the late Ann (Cissie) Ryder nee Diamond, Ballinahinch, who passed away last Wednesday the 13th of February. Cissie was a larger than life character who lit up the lives of every one that she encountered. She was a very warm, witty and friendly person who will be sorely missed. Her death will leave a great vacuum in the community of Newtowncashel. May her soul rest in peace.

EARLY MORNING LENTEN MASSES
During Lent, Mass will be celebrated at 7.00am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This arrangement will give a greater number of people an opportunity to go to Mass during Lent.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
The Stations of the Cross is a devotion that may be performed at any time of the year but is particularly suited to the Lenten Season. Instead of the Rosary, the Way of the Cross will be followed in the Church on the Fridays of Lent at 7.30pm. All are urged to make a special effort to participate in this traditional devotion.
DO THIS IN MEMORY
The First Communion children and their families participate in the liturgy on Sunday next, February 24th, the Second Sunday of Lent.
