The Coordinators of the various Ministry groups in the parish ensure that  the necessary preparations are made for all of the celebrations that take place in the parish week in week out throughout the year.
This week, I would like to pay a special tribute to the coordinator of the Eucharistic Ministers in St Mary’s,
Paddy O Reilly. For more years than any of us can remember, Paddy has ensured that the Eucharistic  rota for the Sunday masses, the Glebe Nursing Home and all of the occasions in the parish has been in place and any
special arrangements needed  have been made.  Paddy has now decided to step down from this coordinating role. Paddy will be on hand to guide his successor Mary de Brun – and many thanks to Mary for taking up this important role in the parish. If you would like to join the Eucharistic team at St. Mary’s, please leave your name at the Sacristy or Parish office.
On behalf of the parish, I offer Paddy our heartfelt thanks for his selfless service, seamless efficiency  and
dedication and wish him and his family every grace and blessing in his retirement.                
Fr Andrew
