Knockanure Notes – 28th December, 2012

LOVELY ceremony for Christmas was held in Knockanure Church on Sunday 23rd December 2012.There was great participation by both children and adults and we had local priests Fr McMahon and Fr O Callaghan assisting our Parish Priest Fr Lucid. Thanks to all who put in so much work in organising and preparing for the night, the Sacristan, singers, readers and many others who prepared for the service.

The Church was again full to capacity with locals and visitors for Christmas night Mass, again the choir were in their element, assisted by Miss More on the piano, solo singers and children.

The small children brought presents for the crib and older children done some readings. Fr Lucid thanked Fr O Callaghan and all who helped with church duties. We all wish to thank Fr Lucid himself who is on duty day and night almost every day of the year.
