Festival ’19 Collinstown + Fore Parish

The Third Annual Parish Festival is over and thanks to everyone who helped in a nay way and thanks to all who attended the various events.

The last week has been a special time in our parish as we celebrated our faith and strengthened the bonds of friendship in our Faith Community.

Thanks to everyone who attended and those who helped in any way.

Thanks to our speakers

Fr Declan Hurley, Mr Simon Marriott & Rev Alastair Graham.

We thank the speakers for taking time to be with us.

During the festival we also remembered our deceased parishioners, blessed hands, and renewed marriage vows.

Thanks to the hospitality committee who ensured there was refreshments for everyone after each of the Masses. Thanks to our sacristans and those who cleaned the churches. Thanks to those who beautifully decorated the altars and Icons of the Holy Family in both churches. Thanks to our two wonderful choirs who greatly enhanced our Masses, they put in great effort and was appreciated by everyone- we are blessed to have to great choirs and musicians. Thanks to our altar servers. Thanks to those who organised the advertisement. Thanks to the committee who organised the 5km run/walk under the direction of Michael Fagan and to Pop Up Races. Around 150 people took part in the 5km. Thanks to our marshals and those who were on standby with first aid.

Thanks to all who supported this year’s festival in any way.  If you were unable to attend – you missed out.
