St Mary Magdalene Church, Kilmyshall

St. Mary Magdalene Church, Kilmyshall was built in 1831. The architect Richard Pierce from Wexford, designed the Church. The Church is a large barn-type building with Gothic Georgian-style plain glass windows. These were replaced in 2003 with windows of identical pattern. The Church has recently been refurbished, and a new  marble tabernacle and marble ambo has been added and the Church has also been repainted and new lighting installed.

In 2016 after a long delay due to the fact that the Church is a listed building, the roof was finally replaced and also insulated. It is through the great generosity of  parishioners and all who supported the fundraising efforts of the Parish Council that this work has now been completed.

The Parish is served by our Priest Fr. Pat Duffy and the parish Council, whose aim is to build up a faith and caring community. It is our hope that our website will not only be informative, but will contribute to uniting all who live here and to help build up a community that is caring and willing to share their time and talents for the benefit of their parish community.

NATIONAL – 

  NET is a national ministry. NET began in the USA in 1981.
It has spread from there to Australia, Canada, Uganda, and in 2003 the first
team was went to Ireland. Our teams minister to parishes and schools all
across Ireland. As well, in the past few years NET Ireland has begun to send
missionaries on excursions to Scotland, England, and the United Arab Emirates.

 

EVANGELISATION –

  One of NET’s primary purposes is evangelisation. Evangelisation means to share
the Good News of the Gospel Message. Every single one of our missionaries has
had a personal encounter with Jesus in his/her life, and has a personal relationship
with Him. This is extremely helpful in equipping our missionaries to communicate
to the youth the gospel message and the impact that Jesus’ Love has had on their lives,
on a peer-to-peer level.

 

TEAMS –
During their training period, NET missionaries are put into teams. This year, we have
local teams ministering to parish/school communities in cork, Dunshaughlin, and
Athenry. These teams’ main priority is to build relationships with the young people of
the area, and help them grow in their faith. We also have a Road team, which travels
to schools and parishes all over Ireland putting on Encounter Days. We also have
two teams on permanent placement in Scotland this year.

Is God calling you to priesthood or religious life?

The Lord takes the initiative, but it is in and through time, people and circumstances that the awareness of the Call is sharpened and clarified. A Vocations Weekend is one of these events. to this end we have arranged the following:

                Ballyvaloo November 4th/5th, one night, €80 per person.
                Registration 4:00 – 6:00pm 4th November
                supper served 6:00pm
                Conclusion after lunch on 5th November

Pope Francis experienced himself, personally, this tension between being called by the Lord and being advised to wait. ‘This is an initiative which the Lord takes. The Lord calls. He calls each of those whom he wills to become priests’.

The story of a vocation by Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

It is the most important and for-reaching choice you will ever make.

If you feel called to priesthood or religious life, don’t be afraid, to take that step and get in touch with your local Vocations Director.

The Kilmyshall Community Christmas Party was held on Sunday 6th December in Kilmyshall community hall. A great evening was had by all.

Santa got delayed but did arrive and all the children got to speak with him. A lovely meal was served with plenty of cakes and buns for the tea afterwards.

Andy & Kitty performed  their recitations on the night and children sang songs. MC Seamus Long provided the music on the night and lovely spot prizes were available to be won on the night.

A special thanks to all who helped in preparing for the evening, decorating the hall etc. Thanks to James & Keith for decorating the hall those who cooked the food and provided trifles and all who helped on the night. Your support is very much appreciated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two public meetings in June and July at which Dermot Nolan, Conservation Engineer

with wide experience of dealing with damage to listed buildings, made a detailed report

on the present condition of the church roof.

 

His conclusion was that the current problems

with the roof are down to poor original design and largely as a result of this there was a

gradual deterioration over time. Patching the roof was not an option because the problem

of leakage is a general one.

 

Lengthy discussions took place following both meetings.

At the meeting in June the following motion was put and voted on.

“The roof will be done as outlined in Dermot Nolan’s report and any electrical

and remedial work necessary”.

 

The meeting voted overwhelmingly to back the Engineer’s Report. It was also agreed

that fund raising would be deferred until the school had reached its fundraising

target and until adequate funds were available to finance the re-roofing of the church.

 

Congratulations to Sarah Byrne & Timothy Halpin who were married recently in
Kilmyshall Church. We wish them every happiness as they start their new life to-
gether.
